Hello to All:

Cell A1 contains a drop-down list using data validation. Is there a way in which a macro can be activated (Macro1) when the user selects anything from the drop-down list?

Thanks,

Anthony

Hi,

yes, you can "watch" cell A1 for changes
Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address(0, 0) <> "A1" Then Exit Sub
'here your code
'or call a macro
End Sub
kind regards,
Erik

2. Select "View Code" in drop down menu
3. VBE window will open ... paste code in and exit VBE
