Excel/VBA - Have a module call another
Is it possible in excel to have a module automatically run another module after the execution of the first module is complete?

if so, how?

As far as I know, you don't run modules in Excel. You run macros (or subroutines) that are placed on modules. You can run the macros in any order and you can call them from each other. E.g.

Sub Macro1
    Macro2   'Calling Macro2
End Sub

Sub Macro2
End Sub
In the above example, Macro1 calls Macro2 at the end of its own run. Theoretically, this calling hapens before Macro1 is finished but, prctically, there's not much difference.

Is this what you need, or have I got it wrong.

It would probably be less confusing to call them both from another routine...

Sub CallBoth()
    Call Macro1
    Call Macro2
End Sub

Sub Macro1()
End Sub

Sub Macro2()
End Sub
