Is there a way I can toggle between 2 series on a chart? I want the user to be able to select 2 options from a combo box and have it show the series based on the selection they make.

Hello,

yes, that is possible.

In the attached file, select a value in G1 and see the chart change.

This is called dynamic charting and is driven by range names that define the chart source, rather than fixed cell references.

If you need more information, please post your workbook for more detailed advice.

cheers, teylyn
