    Hi again,

    I have a macro which I want to run one time, then delete it with code.

    I was thinking have 2 macros, then when the one i want to delete runs, at the end ill add "Call deletemacro" which will call the 2nd macro to delete the first.

    Does anyone have the code to delete a module of code from within vb?

    Thanks

    Hi al,
    Thanks for the link, i added the reference and tried this code:
    Sub Delete_Save()
    Dim VBComp As VBComponent
    Set VBComp = ThisWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents("SaveMacro")
    ThisWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents.Remove VBComp
    End Sub

    but im getting the error "Programmic access to Visual Basic Project is not trusted".

    is there a way to get around this?

    thanks

    Yes. In tools > Macro > security, you can change this. Go to Trusted Sources tab and check the box for Trust Access to Visual Basic Project.
