Good Day,
Please try below VBA code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error GoTo ExitSub
Dim One As Long
Dim Two As Long
One = Range("A1").Value
Two = Range("B1").Value
If Not (Application.Intersect(Range("A1:B1"), Target) Is Nothing) Then
If (One > Two) Then
MsgBox "Range(""A1"") > Range(""B1"")", vbInformation, "Kutools for Excel"
End If
End If
ExitSub:
End Sub

Considering the above example.(VBA code: pop up message box if cell value changes within a range)

when the value of D14 has changed we get a pop up, in the similar way how to get the ID of that (column A of the same row (A14)).
Thanks in advance, any response is appreciable.
