If I have 5 macros, and then have one master macro that runs the other five, can I hide the five from the end user?

Example

Macro1
Macro2
Macro3
Macro4
Macro5
FinalMacro

FinalMacro runs Macros 1 through 5 in order. I want the user to only see FinalMacro, is this possible?

Hi tiehaze,

For your 5 other macros, add an optional argument for each. Eg....

    Sub Macro1(Optional Str As String = "")
    .....
    End Sub

This will prevent them being seen in the macro list and will not affect their operation.

Regards,

Wayne

BTW - you will also still be able to call them as you have been.

Wayne's method will work easily for you and he deserves the points, but another way would be to put "Private " before Sub, assuming macros 1-5 are in the same module as FinalMacro.
Though I would change his "Str" variable to a random name, as Str is a VB function :)
