Hide Macros with Private Subs

If you would like to hide a macro from appearing as an option in the Macro dialog box, it can be done by declaring it as Private.

The following are two macros, only the first one will appear to the user, the second is declared as Private so it will not be visible.

Sub Macro1()

     Call Macro2

End Sub

Private Sub Macro2()

     MsgBox "You can only see Macro1" 

End Sub

hide macro

Note: This only works if both Macros are in the same Module.
