Here's another example: it logs the time of change of A1 to column B and the value to column C.

Code:
Dim OldVal As Variant

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim LR As Long
If Target.Address(False, False) = "A1" Then
    If Target.Value <> OldVal Then
        OldVal = Target.Value
        LR = Range("B" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
        Range("B" & LR + 1).Value = Now
        Range("C" & LR + 1).Value = Target.Value
        Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If
End If
End Sub

It monitors A1. Every time A1 changes it appends the time to column B and the value to column C. If you want something else to happen please explain what exactly.
