Does this have to be a macro? This can more conveniently be done using the Vlookup function.

Enter this formula in B1

=IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet2!B:C,2,0)),"",VLOOKUP(A1,Sheet2!B:C,2,0))

If it must be a macro then you can use

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = Range("A1").Address Then
Range("B1").ClearContents
On Error Resume Next
Range("B1") = WorksheetFunction.VLookup(Target, Sheet2.Range("B:C"), 2, 0)
End If
End Sub

This macro should be placed in the code pane for the sheet in question

Hi, thankyou for the points and the grade.

I would like to emphasise the importance of judicial selection of accepted answers. The spirit of this site is to build a knowledge base which could help other users benefit from. Selection of so many responses would simply confuse someone who is trying to look for solutions to his or her problem. Furthermore, if you would select the answer you used it would give me more feedback on the type of answers the end user could be looking for. Furthermore the acceptance of my third comment was simply meaningless as it is not a solution but just a pointer to how to use the solution.
