Cannot call subs in different sheets

Hi All,

I am "self voting" this my most provincial question to date but I can't figure it out.  I have tried youtube and the usual places to get this kind of question asked.

I have a huge spreadsheet filled with VBA code from one end to the other.

In sheet19 I am trying to call a sub (not private) that is in sheet2.

My code goes something like this:

my sub()

'code here
'code here
'code here

call SubS2        'Sub from Sheet2 and it is not private so it should work

End Sub


So I know that I am doing something so silly that it hurts.

I have tried call sheet2.SubS2....and that does not work.

Any help is much appreciated.

Any cheap shots are surely warranted.   :)

thanks for your help!

Hi,

You have to use the Sheet.CodeName

Maybe Sheet2.SubS2

Attach the workbook.

Not sure why you'd have code attached to every sheet, but it should still work.  I prefer to put nearly everything in modules, but that's just a preference.

I also suggest prefixing public functions with public, just for readability.


If in sheet1 you have

public function DoThisFromSheetOne()
    msgbox "From sheet 1"
end function

Open in new window


and in sheet 2 you have
public function CallTheThingFromOne()
     DoThisFromSheetOne
end function

Open in new window


if you fun CallTheThingFromOne, it should display "From Sheet 1" in a message box.

Test that out for us?

If that doesn't work, or if you need more help, attach a sample.
