    How do I reference a named macro within an embedded macro?

    Macro Names is an option on embedded macros, so clearly there must be a way to call them.. I would like to run the embedded macro on specified event, and then, if certain conditions are met, run a second named macro within the original embedded macro. The problem is that I'm unable to figure out how to reference this.



    Does anyone know the proper syntax needed?

    Embedded macros, like events subs, Can't be called from other macros. This is my understanding and I could be wrong.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    You may well be right. Certainly I haven't found any info that contradicts that yet. I wasn't actually trying to call it from another macro, but rather calling a named macro within an embedded macro from earlier within the same embedded macro.

    I'm not sure if that really makes a difference, but I'm trying to clarify.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
