I have looked through EE but cannot find the solution to my problem.

I have a Macro and at a certain point I need to open another file and run the macro that is in that file then come back to the initial Macro in the original file.

Obviously I can open the file ok but how do I call the macro that is in the file that I open?

The macro in the file I open is called cassDothe work.

Is this enough info to be able to assist me?

thanks

Thanks Rgonzo that runs the Macro. Unfortunately it does not comeback to the original macro, is it possible to do that or not?

My original question was "open another file and run the macro that is in that file then come back to the initial Macro in the original file."

Actually Rgonzo I can re-jig my original Macro so I can get away without coming back to the original.

Many thanks once again.
