I have a macro that writes the results of formula into another cell location. Ideally, this should happen whenever the contents of a particular input cell change. I hooked the macro to the "worksheet_change" event. Not suprisingly, when it fires, it continues to loop since the macro is generating a "change" event. Any thoughts??

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

Put this before your code:
Application.EnableEvents = False

and put this at the end of your code (very important to include this):
Application.EnableEvents = True
