Hi all

I have a macro that should run when I activate a specific cell.

However it runs when I go into ANY cell

My users will enter some data, so ideally I want it to activate when they press enter after putting in the data. I.e they enter data into B5, then C5, and so on entering D5 it should run.

Does that make sense

It should be really simple so I must be making a really obvious mistake

here is my macro

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)

If Target.Address <> "$d$5" Then
MsgBox "got this far"
Application.Run "movedata"
End If

End Sub

Thanks!!

Your IF statement says run the code within the IF BLOCK for any address except $d$5 .... change the <> to =.
