Displaying Graphic On and Off

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.

Brad,

Great work!  Killer App. (as far as you can take an Excel Workbook that is!).

Appreciate the tips, pointers, updates and hard work.
