It's boring, but developing spreadsheets rarely goes through a version
and change control system with a systematic testing program and
backing out of failed versions.

Usually because the user says 'It's just a spreadsheet'. But if you
are attempting to write a proper program in a spreadsheet, then it is
important enough to do proper IT development processes.
