I'm trying to call one macro using a macro in a different workbook.

Both workbooks are open when I execute the macro.

I'm using the syntax:
Application.Run "MacroBook!MacroName"

The error I get is Run Time Error 1004: Cannot run the macro 'macrobook!macroname' The macro may not be available in this work, or all macro may be disabled.

I've tried a number of tweaks to try to make this work and I just can't figure out what I'm missing.

As always, any help is extremely appreciated!

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Possibly:
Application.Run "MacroBook.xls!MacroName"

Is that it?

Hmmm. Strange. Works here. Is the workbook in a trusted location?
