Trying to Execute Macro when dropdown changes in Excel

I'm trying to have a macro run once a dropdown list has changed values but it doesn't seem to be working.
 I've tried a couple of approaches with no luck.


Option Explicit

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Address = "$B$1" Then

Range("B2").Value = ""

End If

End Sub

Open in new window

Whatever you have in your code for Sheet Change Event should work if you place that code on Sheet Module.
Where have you placed that code?

To place the code on Sheet Module, right click the sheet Tab --> View Code --> Paste your code into the opened code window.

BTW what are you trying to achieve?

Thank you very much.  I just wanted to blank the cell because I'm using a data validation indirect and the list is dependent.

Thank you very much.  I'm surprised I was missing something so obvious.
