I'm using the Worksheet Change events to detect changes to cells.

I need to pass in the contents of the cell changed if the column is the third column.

What's the best way to do this?

Do you mean the contents before the change or after?

Assuming you are looking at the content after the change, and you're not interested in changes as the result of a recalculation of the sheet then this example might help.

Its taken from the excel help for 'worsheet.change' and its easy to see how to get it to work with column 3

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
    If Target.Column = 3 Then
        ThisRow = Target.Row
         
        Target.value  holds the new value of the cell

    End If
End Sub

If you need something more complex then an example would help
