How to hide macro name in menu

I have macro (2) within macro (1)
How can I hide macro (2) name in the menu so that
nobody will activate it accidently
Many thanks

Here are a couple of ways :-

First, include a dummy argument in Macro (2) e.g.

Sub Macro2(Optional Dummy)
MsgBox "Hello"
End Sub

Macro2 won't be visible in the Tools, Macros window.

The second, much tidier solution is to put

Option Private Module at the top of your module. Any macros in there won't be visible in the Macros window.
