I have two simple VBA scripts I am using and they work fine, but I need to run one after the other.  Whats the easiest way to do this in an excel Macro.  

is it easier to put the two in one.. which would work fine, or else how do you tell a macro to run 2 pieces.

Sure it is a no brainer but figured I would ask those smarter.

Other thing is when I run this macro from a different Tab, it runs on the active tab, not the defined sheet.  Sure this is just a error on my part too.

Thanks
Rusty

Sub HideCols()
    Dim r As Long, LastRow As Long
    LastRow = Sheets("Proposal").UsedRange.Rows(Sheets("Proposal").UsedRange.Rows.Count).Row
    For r = LastRow To 2 Step -1
        If Cells(r, 9) = 0 Then
            Rows(r).EntireRow.Hidden = True
        End If
    Next r
End Sub

Sub UnhideCols()
    Dim r As Long, LastRow As Long
    LastRow = Sheets("Proposal").UsedRange.Rows(Sheets("Proposal").UsedRange.Rows.Count).Row
    For r = LastRow To 2 Step -1
        If Cells(r, 9) = 1 Then
            Rows(r).EntireRow.Hidden = False
        End If
    Next r
   
End Sub

To save on iterating the rows twice try:

Sub HideUnhideCols()
    Dim r As Long, LastRow As Long
    LastRow = Sheets("Proposal").UsedRange.Rows(Sheets("Proposal").UsedRange.Rows.Count).Row
    For r = LastRow To 2 Step -1
        If Cells(r, 9) = 0 Then
            Rows(r).EntireRow.Hidden = True
        ElseIf Cells(r, 9) = 1 Then
            Rows(r).EntireRow.Hidden = False
    Next r
End Sub
    
End Sub

I thought the question was
how do you tell a macro to run 2 pieces
because you knew how to
put the two in one.. which would work fine

So the accepted answer should have been that and any other response which helps you should have been an assist.
