Excel 2010 vba..


I have a variable that holds a specific Column Number for other purposes.
trColumn as String

I need to know:
Is there a way, that if i "Double Click in a cell anywhere  in that specific Column.

I can fire off an event...?

If a person copys/cuts and pastes or scrolls on cells in that Column...or anything else...
I do not want the event fired off?

The event i want to capture this  in is:

Private Sub xlApp_SheetChange(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range)

or maybe here ?

Private Sub xlApp_SheetBeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Sh As Object, ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)


I think something like this would work.
 
If i know  trColumn  = "H"

Select Case ActiveCell.Address
   
    Case "$trColumn"  ?

         'do something for column trColumn

    Case Else
         'do nothing
    End Select



Thanks

There are two ways to trap a doubleclick. One is the Workbook_SheetBeforeDoubleClick events sub that responds to a doubleclick in any cell in the workbook. It is installed in the ThisWorkbook code pane. The other is a Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick sub that responds only to doubleclicks on cells in that worksheet. I believe this latter sub is what you want; it is installed in the code pane for the worksheet.
'The following sub goes in the code pane for the worksheet being watched. It won't work at all if installed anywhere else.
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
If Target.Column = 8 Then   'A cell in column H was doubleclicked
    Cancel = True   'Turn off the normal "edit the cell" response to a doubleclick
    'do something
End If
End Sub
