Passing a variable from one procedure into another

I have a procedure that draws boxes in a report. The width of the boxes varies but does not effect the rest of the boxes. So I want to write:

Private sub Boxes
Dim W as integer
W = 5  'Draw boxes 5 Wide
Me.PSet (300,0)  'Move over a bit then draw some more boxes, but this time 8 wide
W = 8
End Sub

Private sub DrawBoxes ()
Me.Line  (0, 0) - Step (BoxHeight , W) ,0 ,B
end sub

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
