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

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.
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
