    Macros and Modules

    Hi all

    I'm a total newbie to this, trying to learn VBA on my own with no programming background whatsoever so I beg you to have patience...

    If I use the recorder to record two different macros, I noticed they get created in two different modules. Playing around with the Visual Basic Editor I realized I can write two macros (that have nothing to do with each other) in the same module, so I wonder: for n unrelated different macros, is it better to use n different modules (like the recorder does by default) or it's better to use just one module? Or it makes no difference?

    Thanks to all

    In small workbooks, that have very little VBA I just use one module. I do have a very large workbook that has around 20 modules with the code broken down into types in each of the modules (Get, Set, Check, Add, etc).

    As for the recorder creating new modules, it seems to me it does this when you record for the first time since opening the workbook. It will keep using the same one until you close and open the workbook again. That has been my experience anyway.
