Put in "PIN" change to Initial

Ok, so I know how to do this using a back page sheet


But what I ultimately need and can't figure out is how to do this in the same cell. Rather than typing the "PIN" in Sheet2 B1 to input the initial in Sheet 1 M2, I need to be able to type the "PIN" into Sheet 1 M2 and have it change to the initial when I hit enter and leave the cell.

Any ideas?

You could use a worksheet change event. By placing this code in the Sheet Module.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$M$2" Then
    If Target.Value = "1234" Then
    Target.Value = "GM"
    ElseIf Target.Value = "2345" Then
    Target.Value = "AP"
    End If
End If
End Sub
