Default Running a macro when selecting an item in a drop-down list

Could someone provide me with the code to run macro "MyMacro" when an item is
selected from a drop-down list located in cell H4?

Right click the workhseet tab with the drop down in it and select view code.
Paste the following...

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Address = "$H$4" Then Call MyMacro
End Sub

Any item will run the macro or certain items will run certain macros?

This worksheet change event will run MyMacro whenever any item is picked
from the DV dropdown.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count 1 Then Exit Sub
If Intersect(Target, Me.Range("H4")) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
On Error GoTo CleanUp
Application.EnableEvents = False
With Target
If .Value < "" Then
MyMacro
End If
End With
CleanUp:
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

Thank you, Gord. I'll try your code as well.
