VBA Call / Run Sub From another Subroutine

This tutorial will teach you how to call a sub procedure from within another sub procedure in VBA

It is very useful to write code that can be used repetitively, and called from multiple sub procedures in your project – it can save an enormous amount of time and makes the VBA code far more efficient.

Running a Sub Procedure from another Sub Procedure

Consider the 3 Sub Procedures below:

If we run the Sub Procedure – TestRoutine – it will call RunRoutine1 and RunRoutine2 and 2 message boxes will appear.

vba run subs

There is no limit to the number of Sub Procedures you can call from another Sub Procedure.

Using the Call Statement

You can also use the Call Statement in front of the procedure name, to make your code easier to read.   However, it has no effect whatsoever on how the code is run or stored.

vba run subs call

Calling a Sub with Arguments

Calling a Sub with Named Arguments

If you name your arguments, you don’t have to pass them in the same order to your sub routines.
