encode month and category in excel vba

Last Modified: 2012-08-15
I have a range of cells for a client that represent 12 months with 11 rows each representing a category.

so b16 to m26 represents a whole years worth of monthly data against each category.

I want to do an event on the cell in the range that is clicked and I have setup the code to do that.

as the 11 categories and months stay the same i wonder if there is an easier way to get to my event code without trawling through a long select case:

    Select Case Target.Address
        Case "$b$16"
        'event for category overall jan
        Case "$b$17"
        'event for category smmt jan
        Case "$b$18"
        Case "$b$19"
        Case "$b$20"
        Case "$b$21"
        Case "$b$22"
        Case "$b$23"
        Case "$b$24"
        Case "$b$25"
        Case "$b$26"
        Case "$c$16"
         'event for category overall feb
        Case "$c$17"
        Case "$c$18"
        Case "$c$19"
        Case "$c$20"
        Case "$c$21"
        Case "$c$22"
        Case "$c$23"
        Case "$c$24"
        Case "$c$25"
        Case "$c$26"
