I woudl like to understand the PROTECTED VOID MyProc vs  VOID My Proc. WHAT IS CORRECT AND WHY ?

when you define a protected method, this method could be used just by the self-class methods, and by other method in derived classes. You can not use it from outside the class.
when you not define an accessibility modifier, it is assumed to be private by default, so derived classes cannot have access to this method, just self-class methods.
