The program in the Merging Lists.xlsm file from the previous chapter (see Example 9.4) is written as a single sub.
a. Break it into several shorter subs, all called from a Main sub. The called subs should be (1) Clear Old (to clear the old merged list in column D, if any), (2) Get Data (to put the data in the current lists in arrays), and (3) Create Merged List (to create the merged list in column D). Don’t pass any variables; use all module-level variables for any shared variables.
b. Repeat part a, but pass variables. In particular, the listSize1 and listSize2 variables and the list1 and list2 arrays should be arguments of both Get Data and Create Merged List. (Hint: Refer to the section in this chapter dealing with passing arrays as arguments.)
Merging Lists Like the previous example, this example is easy to describe but no less challenging to develop. It is an example of merging two lists and is contained in the file Merging Lists.xlsm. As in all applications in Part II of the book, there is an Explanation sheet (see Figure 9.10) that users see when they open the file. It explains the purpose of the application, and it has a button that runs a macro to take them to the Data worksheet. The code attached to this button is very simple:
The lists (with some hidden rows) in the Data worksheet are already sorted in alphabetical order and appear in Figure 9.11. Note that some customers are in
