Experts,

I have been working on a dashboard, that the functionality is developed.  However, I would now like to continue to modify this new code to other sheets in the spreadsheet.

I have been working closely with an expert who has helped me code.  I am looking to have a better understanding of the code. See related post for spreadsheet.

thanks!

Ok - here it is for the next sheet. and some explanation on how it all works:

You only needed this change.  Executive Rollup looks at the same ranges as Summary Dashboard, for the Listbox2 control

That would be - Summary_Delta_Range:

Private Sub ListBox2_LostFocus()

    Call UpdateChart_ArrayOnLBLostFocus(ListBox2, "Summary_Delta_Range", "Executive Rollup Data", "Executive Rollup", "Chart 238", True)
    Call UpdateChart_ReviseTitle(ListBox2, "Summary_Delta_Range", "Executive Rollup Data", "Executive Rollup", "Chart 238")
   
End Sub

Reflect a bit on how all this works, as you move forward...

For you need an UpdateChart_ArrayOnLBLostFocus AND an UpdateChart_ReviseTitle on
the single listbox with columns (recall also that the columnar listbox needs to do
vlookup on the parsed out key, so in this instance, that's still Summary_Delta_Range.

If you were to do this on other charts with different data sheets, youd need to set the
data up JUST LIKE the EXECUTIVE ROLLUP DATA sheet - the keys in the first column at the top,
the columns with different key in the first column on the bottom dataset.

The data ranges set out across the top

and referenced in the bottom.

The option buttons copied from one sheet to another

The option button code copied from a working sheet to the new sheet.

Note I've updated option buttons 1-6 now.

See attached:

PS - at some point, you're going to wonder why when you hit the arrow button, the chart doesn't open when
you click it after having done anything but selected something to chart.
and that's because the listbox lostfocus didn't fire.  If you make a command button macro for each one of these
then you can call the Listbox1_Lostfocus routine.  You can't run that routine OUTSIDE of the SHEET CODEPAGE.

Don't worry, you can make the command button transparent with your arrow "Update" icon in the background.

If you need help, ask another question and I'll walk you through it more detailed than this.


Let's make sure all your questions on what's been done have been answered (before moving to the next problem) then close out.  That way, you've got a documented understanding.

As there are no links, you can upload to Sharepoint, if other users are downloading to function.  Not sure if you convert to HTML (haven't messed with that much) how it will work but would like to know.

Okay..  Maybe I need to ask this question in the sharepoint section, not in excel.  Thanks..  I do have a question about the following:

PS - at some point, you're going to wonder why when you hit the arrow button, the chart doesn't open when
you click it after having done anything but selected something to chart.

--- I am experiencing that issue and would like to know more..  I will post a question about this, okay?
