Can I run a macro when I click on a cell?

I have a column that holds a key number that I would like to place into another cell when I click on the cell.  Right now, I copy the row and paste it up at the top.  I would like to know how I can make this something that happens upon clicking the cell...instead of copying and pasting.  I have a right-click option for now, but as you will see in the XLS, it will paste the key field at the top of the screen and bring in the "often wordy" description.

My thoughts is that this code would only run if you clicked a cell in column G since that is the key #.  Thoughts?

Try this way:

jppinto
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    If (Not Intersect(Target, Range("G:G")) Is Nothing) Then 
       'your code here
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

yes by double cliking in it:
Open the VBE (Alt+F11) and then double click the Sheet in the Project Explorer the code applies to. This is where the code must be placed

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Call Mycode
End Sub

Both solutions worked great.  I only marked the one as "Best Solution" b/c it is what I specifically asked for.  However, the double-click works great too.  Thanks for the help!!!
