VBA excel, Copy Row to Memory for Later UnDo

I have a form with 3 CommandButtons.  
1. "Copy Row"  Button
2. "Clear Values" Button
3. "UnDo Row" Button

Here are the Click Actions for each Button:

Private Sub Copy_Row_Click()

      ' ....???? Selection.EntireRow ....Copy to Memory ???

End Sub


Private Sub Clear_Values_Click()

          Selection.EntireRow.Clear

End Sub


Private Sub Undo_Row_Click()

  ' ....???? Selection.EntireRow ......bring back the old Row....???..

End Sub

Open in new window



I am trying to find a way so that, when I hit the Button "Copy_Row" and Then Button "Clear Values"  to be able (if I decide at a later stage) to bring the entire cleared Row (with its Values and its Formulas) back to place.....

I am not looking for the standard method of copying the whole file because it is very big and it will slow the procedures down....

Thanks in advance,
Any ideas?

If you only ever wanted to be able to recover the most recently deleted row, you could store its values in a variant array, the restore them later.  But this would only restore values/formulas, not formatting:

Private mvSavedRow

Private Sub Copy_Row_Click()

      ' ....???? Selection.EntireRow ....Copy to Memory ???
      mvSavedRow = Application.Intersect(Selection.EntireRow, ActiveSheet.UsedRange).Formula

End Sub


Private Sub Clear_Values_Click()

          Selection.EntireRow.Clear

End Sub


Private Sub Undo_Row_Click()

  ' ....???? Selection.EntireRow ......bring back the old Row....???..
  Dim rng As Excel.Range
  
  Set rng = Selection.Cells(1)
  rng.Resize(1, UBound(mvSavedRow, 2)).Formula = mvSavedRow

End Sub

Open in new window

If you wanted formats and everything, you would probably have to copy the row to another (hidden?) sheet, then copy it back again

Hi andrew.

Is it possible to save the Row in a closed Workbook file and then retrieve it while workbook remains closed?

Thank you... Presentation is important for me!

You couldn't save it in a closed workbook - it would have to be open in Excel to write to it and read from it. The first suggestion I made would not show anything to the user. If formatting is important you could possibly copy it from another row.

Yes very good solution but limited. There are probably not a lot of things you can do generally for this
