     This is a make-shift sub, also known as ghetto sub. It is a way to design subs with out using sub or function. It is “ghetto” because it is cumbersome and it doesn’t have parameters or return values.

				Public Sub Main()
Debug.Print "code before call to makeshift sub1"
On Error GoTo makeshiftsub1
Err.Raise 8 'this is the call to makeshift sub1
Debug.Print "code after call to makeshift sub1, before sub2"
On Error GoTo makeshiftsub2
Err.Raise 8 'this is the call to makeshift sub2
Debug.Print "code after call to makeshift sub2"
GoTo endsub 'we need a place to store our makeshift subs
'so we will put them in here at the footer of our main
makeshiftsub1: 'makeshift sub1 definition, like sub statement
Debug.Print "something called in out makeshift sub1"
Resume Next 'makeshift end sub1
makeshiftsub2: 'makeshift sub2 definition
Debug.Print "something called in out makeshift sub2"
Resume Next 'makeshift end sub2
endsub: 'end footer and exit main
End Sub
