Using Booleans globally in excel vba

I am trying to set up a boolean 'HideRows' globally. Within the 'Summary' tab, CodeB hides all of the empty rows when that worksheet is activated. I don't want that code activated until after 'CodeA' is run. So what I did below is set up HideRows = False and then after CodeA is run, I set HideRows = True.
Then, in the Worksheet's code, I have an if statement saying that if HideRows = True then execute CodeB

Public HideRows As Boolean
HideRows = False
Sub CodeA
HideRows = True

'Summary Worksheet Code
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
If HideRows = True Then
        Execute CodeB
End if
End Sub

What am I doing wrong?

For clarification, the problem that I am having is in:

'Summary Worksheet Code
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
If HideRows = True Then
        Execute CodeB
End if
End Sub

It isn't executing CodeB and therefor must not be recognizing HideRows as true

Place this code in your worksheet module:

Public HideRows As Boolean

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
   If HideRows Then CodeB
End Sub

The other code should look like:

   CodeA
   Sheets("Summary").HideRows = True
