I would like to run a macro when the selection changes in a given range, and the active cell is a certain phrase.
I put this code in the worksheet part of the code.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("My Range")) Is Nothing And ActiveCell.Value <> "Phrase" Then
End Sub

However I only want the code to run when the ActiveCell is in My Range.
How I have it,the code runs every time and checks for the ActiveCell's content
 

Excel Facts

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

Activecell should really be Target, but other than that, your code will only run if the target cell is in MyRange & does not equal Phrase.
