Can selecting a tab trigger a macro?

In my workbook, one tab ( SOA ) contains a lot of inventory. The next tab
( SOA_2 )contains a database extraction and displays only those records from SOA with " units > 0 ". The macro that does the extraction is now triggered by clicking on a button. This all works fine, but ... It would be a little more " idiot proof " if the extraction macro could be triggered every time the SOA_2 tab is selected. Can this be set up? If so, How?

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

Regards,

Vernon

If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

Put your macro code in the WorkSheet Activate event.
Right click the Sheet tab, choose View code.
Paste your macro code in the panel that opens.
Change the Sub MacroName to:
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
