The ImmediateWindow display will only work if you are at a breakpoint in the test sub.

If you were to define FinalRow (IMO you should define ALL variables) like this

Option Explicit

Dim FinalRow As Long ' Private would be better than Dim

Open in new window


then you could see the value at any breakpoint.

in this case can you see the attached file. why it does not stop at row 120 and it continues the formula to the million of rows. the vba does not stop where it should stop at the finalrow1

Because you haven't defined FinalRow, so after sub test it doesn't exist, whereas activecell always exists because it's built into Excel.

In that file you have this line

Do Until main.Cells(introw, 1) = finalrow1

which says "Do this process until the value in column A = 120" and it never will be "120" so it never stops. Try this instead

Do Until intRow = finalrow1
