You can do this with a Worksheet_Change event macro that is inserted in Sheet5:
Worksheet_Change event

Tried it and ANY cell that changes on the Summary sheet triggers the private sub.

You'll have to show us your code; if you used either Flora20's or my example, it would only happen if cell B13 of Sheet5 (Summary ?) was changed.
