    If the Pivot Table is on the same sheet that changes data, you need avoid a loop, so you need implement a conditional statement

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

    If Intersect(Target, Range("M:M")) Is Nothing Then
    Exit Sub
    Else
    'MsgBox "You just changed" & Target.Address
    Worksheets("SheetName").PivotTables("PivotTableName").PivotCache.Refresh
    End If

    End Sub
