Question
I have an 81 line, 13 column ss.  Column 3 contains a value for each row.  I would like to be able to click on columns E-P in any row and have the contents of column 3 appear where I clicked.  IE..if I click in cell M14, the contents in C14 would appear in M14.

Answer
Put this macro the Sheet module for the sheet where you want this behavior to occur automatically:


Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim cell As Range

For Each cell In Target
    If Not Intersect(cell, Range("E:P")) Is Nothing Then cell.Value = Cells(cell.Row, "C").Value
Next cell

End Sub
