EXCEL: Using a subroutine in several worksheets

I would like place a subroutine in the workbook section of the workbook and use it in multiple worksheets.

In the General Section of the workbook code I have this:
Private Sub GlobalSub(str As String)
blah blah blah
End Sub

Open in new window


In the Click event of a combo box I have this:
Private Sub combobox1_Click()
ThisWorkbook.GlobalSub ("TEXT")
End Sub

Open in new window


I get a Method or Data Member not found error in line 2 of the click event.
Thoughts?

It would actually be better to put that sub in a code Module.

duh.
wouldn't that be in the General section of the workbook?
Again the best thing to do is to either cut and paste that sub (after changing to Public) to an existing code module (like Module1), or

Alt+f11 to get to the IDE
From the menu do Insert|Module
Paste or create a new Public sub

Having done that the code is available everywhere in the workbook.

In any case I'm glad I was able to help.
