Hi,

You have to refer to the file in the sub

Sub RunTheReport()
Dim Repfile As Workbook
   Set Repfile = ThisWorkbook
   Application.ScreenUpdating = False
   Call XYZ(Repfile)
End Sub

Sub XYZ(myFile)
   myFile.Activate
End Sub

Open in new window



O ryou have to put
Dim Repfile As Workbook
at the beginning of your module out of any sub or function
as global variable

Move
Dim Repfile As Workbook
above all subs in the module, and change to
Public Repfile As Workbook

Now Repfile is only to use in RunTheReport, not in other subs.
