I am solving the following issue: I want to scrape a title of website when link inserted in column A and put this value to relevant cell (next to it) in column B. The issue seems to be that once I paste the website in column A, the code reruns the entire list from column A2 to "last row" as defined in the code. Is there any way to only modify column B once a single column A is modified? I.e. if I paste a link in column A36 I get a title in B36, regardless of whether the cell is in the middle of the used range or at the very bottom (i.e. only that very cells gets affected..) I would like to use this without having to re-run multiple inputs as it currently stands; (i.e. the loop "for i =2 to last row")? Also, I would like to change the below from Modular macro i.e. sub to private sub reacting to change (i.e. intersect function) where the 'target' is any cell from A:A range. Many thanks!

the code is as follows:

Sub get_title_header()

Dim wb As Object

Dim doc As Object Dim sURL As String

Dim lastrow As Long

lastrow = Sheet1.Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).row

For i = 2 To lastrow

Set wb = CreateObject("internetExplorer.Application")

sURL = Cells(i, 1) wb.navigate sURL

wb.Visible = False

While wb.Busy

DoEvents Wend ''HTML document

Set doc = wb.document

Cells(i, 2) = doc.Title

On Error GoTo err_clear

Cells(i, 3) = doc.GetElementsByTagName("h1")(0).innerText

err_clear: If Err <> 0 Then Err.Clear Resume


End If

wb.Quit Range(Cells(i, 1), Cells(i, 3)).Columns.AutoFit

Next i

End Sub
