You'll need to use the SelectionChange event also to capture what the previous value was.

This code will only affect column B...

Private PrevValue As Variant

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Column = 2 Then 'column B
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        Target.EntireColumn.Replace PrevValue, Target.Value, xlWhole
        PrevValue = Target.Value
        Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    PrevValue = Target.Value
End Sub
