The following VBA code can help you to execute a specific code automatically when the formula result cell changes, please do as this:
1. Right-click the sheet tab that you want to use, and then choose View Code from the context menu, in the opened Microsoft Visual Basic for applications window, copy and paste the following code into the blank Module:
VBA code: Automatically run macro when cell formula result changes:
Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Dim Xrg As Range
Set Xrg = Range("C2:C8")
If Not Intersect(Xrg, Range("C2:C8")) Is Nothing Then
Note: In the above code, C2:C8 is the range of formula cells that you want to use，maco1 is the name of the macro you want to run automatically. Please change it to your need.
