      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

    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.
