I am having a problem with marking cells as changed.

Cell:
A B C
1 ABC WE PI
2 XYZ ZQ QE
a. I highlight Cells A1, B1, C1 (starting with A1)
b. Then I type the letter X in A1 & tab out.
RESULT:
A1, B1, C1 are bolded & red (all 3 cells fell into the Worksheet_Change event), not just A1.

How can I force it to only look at the cell that changed?

BACKGROUND NOTES:
1. I have the (Tools>Options>Edit Tab) "Edit directly in cell" checked off
2. I am using this code in the "Changed" event of the worksheet.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Target.Font.ColorIndex = 3
Target.Font.Bold = True
End Sub

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks,
Turbotoan
 

Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Sorry, I can't replicate that with Excel 2000 (I can't see there being a difference with any other versions either). Do you have any similar code in the Selection_Change event? If so, you will need to delete that.

I checked, but do not have any code in the Worksheet_SelectionChange event.
Any other suggestions?

I'm with Mudface. I pasted your code in a worksheet module and could not duplicate your problem. I'm using Excel 2000 and NT

I am running Excel 97.
What are some of your other Tools --> Options --> Edit settings set to?
