Call a Macro From a Macro

So you just recorded two macros, and you would like to run them as one macro, it’s pretty simple.

Assuming you have Macro1 and Macro2, put this code at the end of Macro1

Sub Macro1 ()
Call Macro2
End Sub

Now every time you run Macro1, Macro2 runs automatically. Macro1 will wait until Macro2 is finished before continuing to run.

You can also use Application.Run to call a macro.

Sub Macro1 ()
Application.Run Macro2
End Sub
