Excel 2010 Remove characters vba

I have a very simply spread sheet. Starting in column a2 I scan a barcode that returns a result of ABC12345. The cursor then goes into a3 to scan my next barcode which will be abc55555 and so on. All the barcodes will begin with ABC. What I would like to happen is when scanning the barcode ABC is removed to just show the number (12345).  I want this to happen automatically not using something like =RIGHT(A2, LEN(A2)-3. It seems when I try this It does not change my result.

Any help is appreciated.

Put this in the VBA code for that Sheet (not in a module).

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Column = 1 Then
    If Left(Target.Value, 3) = "ABC" Then
        Target.Value = Mid(Target.Value, 4, 9999)
    End If
End If
End Sub
