    OK, so now I am embarrassed...

    I have been working on a reasonably complicated spreadsheet used for timesheet calculations, with VBA script and a blank master sheet that gets duplicated for each employee etc etc...

    Having just done a test and found all was working well, I deleted the current sheet and went to hide the master...horror of horrors the master was not there anymore!

    Cue much cursing and ranting (silent of course as there are children present!) and a general feeling of despair that now I would have to redo all my changed to the original when...

    ...I realised that I had already hidden the master and it was sitting there quite intact...

    I definitely picked the wrong week to give up beer...

    Glad it had a happy ending. We've all had those moments of terror.

    It's usually just after you've hit OK on the 'Are you sure?' box
