I have a list that I would like to be filtered based on the value in a cell.
In the attached file, there are two sheets.
The first sheet is the complete list of books and authors.
The second sheet is a filtered list based on "*mi* being contained in the author's name.
I would like to change the value of *mi* to something else and have the list automatically filtered.

Code Used in the worksheet "Queries"

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Application.EnableEvents = False
    If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B2")) Is Nothing Then
        ActiveSheet.ListObjects("List1").Range.AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:= _
        "=" & Range("B2"), Operator:=xlAnd
    End If
