Global Multi Use module - to use within Active X DLL and from referencing application

Have an ActiveX DLL written using VB5.  Have a global multi use class module containing subs and functions to use in the referencing application,  but I also want to use these in other class modules within the DLL - I know I can create an instance of the global multi use class module for the other class modules to be able to use the functions, but I don't want to have to specify the root each time.  I.e. I don't want to use GlobalRootModule.MyFunction, I want to just use MyFunction (within the DLL and from the referencing application)

VB cannot exports modules like C++ can.
Therefor you cannot export individual functions.
BTW: Using a class to reference your functions has the advantage that the location of the DLL is not important anymore. If your are referencing exported functions, that you need the location of the DLL or the DLL should be in your path.
