Call sub from variable
I would like to call a sub (or function if necessary) from a variable. Currently I am having difficulties doing this. I get an error. The error is Compile error: Expected Sub, Function, or Property. The code I am using is below:
SubToCall = "Call" & "Me"
' Process data here
Any suggestions on how to make this work would be greatly apprecieated.

I dont know if what you want to do is possible. What exactly are you trying to do? there is an addressof() function that allows you to get the address of a function. or maybe you can use a case structure for example
Private Sub Command_Click()
Select Case VaribleName
Messagebox "No such Function Name"
sorry best i can do

I need to process and evaluate incoming comm port data 1 of 16 different ways. The process varies widely so I will not have any common code. The process will not change during the program execution and is determined at startup by a series of radio buttons. My intent was to run the proper procedure based on radio button input. I would assign a variable to the radio button which would execute the correct procedure on incoming comm port data. I did not want to evaluate a select case for each data input since the process would remain constant throughtout the program execution. I appreciate your input. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

The CallByName Function will do what you want. You could even append the index of the option button to the name of the function too.

Public Function calval(ByVal x As Integer) As Integer
calval = x * x
Private Sub Form_Load()
MsgBox CallByName(Form1, "calval", VbMethod, 10)
