Time Stamp Problems

Ok, Here is my problem, I am wanting to put a time stamp in cell D5 when cell B5 is altered, so I have that part. I was able to do this with a VBA I got from this site (Thanks to pennysaver and everyone else). Now the problem is that I want to do this same procedure again in the same spread sheet but this time when cell E5 is altered cell F5 denotes the change. I have tried entering in the same VBA code twice denoting the changes in range and offset but I get an error message of Ambiguous name detected: Worksheet_Change. So I changed the title to Worksheet_change1, which gets rid of the error message but then the spread sheet does nothing when information is changed in cell E5. Any help here would be greatly appreciated. By the way here is the code I am currently using.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim keyRange As Range
Set keyRange = Range("b5:b44")
If Not Intersect(keyRange, Target) Is Nothing Then
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "password"
Target.Offset(0, 2) = Time
ActiveSheet.Protect "password"
End If
End Sub

Private Sub Worksheet_Change1(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim keyRange As Range
Set keyRange = Range("e5:e44")
If Not Intersect(keyRange, Target) Is Nothing Then
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "password"
Target.Offset(0, 1) = Time
ActiveSheet.Protect "password"
End If
End Sub

Square and cube roots
The =SQRT(25) is a square root. For a cube root, use =125^(1/3). For a fourth root, use =625^(1/4).

One more question instead of only displaying tme in my code I would like to also display the date. What is the word to use for this?

I figured out how to enter both date and time, just replace time with now(). I should have thought of that before posting.

To give you a little more information if I have both codes in the sheet I get the date and time in more cells than I want it in. It seems that there should be an easy fix for this but I just cant figure it out. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
