Small Macro to move data over

EE Pros,

I have two Worksheets where I enter a number in WS1 (say A4), and I need it to place the entered number in a cell (say B4) in WS2 then stop.  

The reason for the macro instead of a formula is that once I move to WS2, I want the ability to put in a new number (different then what is on WS1) to get a graphic to change.  I have it all working except for this number passing.

What would be the simple Macro (Private....) and I'm assuming it would be put into the WS1 Module to look for a change in that particular cell.

I hope that makes sense.

Put this in the worksheet change event of sheet1

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A4")) Is Nothing Then
    Sheets("Sheet2").Range("B4") = Target.Value
End If
End Sub

Open in new window

Downside to using a Macro is that you lose the Undo history.

How about having an alternative input cell on WS2, eg A1, and then a formula in B4:


The user can then enter or delete the Alternative Input value as required.

Rob,  Interesting approach....let me give it a try.  

Gowflow's approach also works well.

For sure this is pretty basic it all depends how you apply it then maybe there are other ways for sure. But the way you asked for it we delivered it point blank.

Thanks guys and sorry for the delay.... I went with Gowflow's macro solution although I do appreciate Rob's solution as well.  The beauty of Gowflow's solution is that the user doesn't see the formula and Excel looks more like a real app.

Sorry for the delay...
