I have an Exce spreadsheet that allows the user to click on a cell and display the relative information about that product.  There is a chart that is on the bottom of the spreadsheet that is not visible unless you scroll all the way down.

For continuity is there a way to set it up so that clicking on a cell and toggle back and forth between the chart and the data?

Not that I know of, but you can use Ctrl-G or F5 and put in the row quickly...

Okay, you can also use bookmarks

or hyperlinks (for charts, add it in a cell around the chart, or use an event on chart.click)

They're named ranges in Excel, not bookmarks. :)

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose"

It can always play second life as a bookmark!

Or, to quote the 2007 offline Help file:
"What's in a name ? That which we call a cell range, function, constant, or table would tally and toil just as sweetly, methinks. But nay, don't take me at my word. Read what follows that is writ, to master all manner of names that befit."
