Excel VBA Dynamic Charting.

I have a set of data that needs to be charted that is changing based on drop down that the user selects.

The data looks like this

Product    | Month 1 sales | Month 2 sales ..... | Month 12 sales
product1          30                    30                           20      

The number of products changes drastically (1-40) based on a dropdown on another sheet. I'd like to graph  this data automatically using vba or any other trick.

can you provide a data sample in an Excel file and explain exactly what you want to chart? There are many ways to skin this cat.

Attached are some ideas for dynamic charts, including pivot chart, or charting by row or by column, as per user selection.

If your data source changes "drastically" please provide a few samples of how this could look, so the dynamic formulas can be adusted accordingly.

Hi Teyln,

I've added some comments to your book.

In that case, you can create a line chart off the complete source table, then set a filter on the source table and Excel will only plot the visible rows.

see attached.

cheers, teylyn
