EE Pros,

Simple related question;

If I have a macro called "Run_Order" that right now appears as a button with an associated Macro.    I want it to run automatically, each time it sees a change or entry to a particular column of cells, what is the simple code I use and do I put it in "ThisWorkbook" or the Sheet or a Module?  The macro only partains to a particular sheet and only when the sheet is open.

Thank you,

B.

Right click the tab of the sheet you want it to work with.

Then select Change from the right drowdown above the code window.

You should now see this, which is where the code should go.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

End Sub

Open in new window

To check if the change was made in a specific column there are various ways, here's one.
Dim rng As Range 

      Set rng = Range("A:A") ' range to check for change

      If Intersect(rng, Target) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub ' if change not in range then exit the code

      Application.EnableEvents = False

      Call Run_Order        ' call the code you want to run

      Application.EnableEvents = True

Open in new window

This is the basic idea, and will only work for the range you specify on the worksheet the code is in when the workbook is open.
