I have this great little chart/graph that both Teylyn and Brad (Byuntd) helped me create (actually, they did most of the creating while I only assembled and did some learning).  I have the graphic on a single worksheet and have linked it into a front end sheet at a reduced size, (via copying the original chart/graphic and a macro that keeps it dynamically updated between worksheets.  Here's my question.  Is there some simple macro code I can use (button activated) that will toggle off and on the graphic (i.e. display it, hide it) on the target worksheet?  And do I load the code into the worksheet or a module?

Thank you in advance,

B.

You can toggle the visibility of the chart using the following macro in a regular module sheet:

Sub ToggleChartVisibility()
With Worksheets("Target").ChartObjects(1)
    .Visible = Not .Visible
End With
End Sub

I updated your sample file with command buttons (Forms toolbar) to run the two macros.
