Excel 2013 VBA - Click on cell G5 to activate a macro

I would like to run a macro when cell G5 is clicked. This macro will run a message box -- as an example-- "Hello world"
I would also like to input data in to that cell as well. After the message box is acknowledged.

Right-click the tab of the worksheet containing cell G5 and select "View Code". Paste this code into the code module...

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Address = [G5].Address Then
        If MsgBox("Click to Acknowledge.", vbOKCancel) = vbOK Then
            Target.Value = "your value"
        End If
    End If
End Sub
