The above answer is not entirely complete,


You need to open the VBA Editor first, by either hitting Ctrl-G or opening the module from database window.

At that point, F5 will work (specify the name of the sub or function you want to run)

You can also hit ctrl-G again, which will take you to the "immediate window" at the bottom of the vba editor.  From there, you can run the sub or function by typing it its name and specifying pass parameters as needed.

The technical answer is - you don't run modules - you run procedures.  You need to run the sub or function contained in the module.  If there are multiple, you need to figure out what is the "main" procedure that invokes the others.  If they are all independent, you would need to run each in turn.
