Excel 2010 Combo Box/Name Manager/Data Validation Issues

Hi,

I am trying to get the chart on sheet 'B1Graph' to display the data for each particular feature on the sheet 'Data' depending on what I pick from the drop down box in 'B1Graph' Cell L2

I am having trouble getting the graph to automatically update and I can't understand where I'm going wrong in my name manager formulas.

Ideally, the row 'Dimension' would be a fixed line (i.e. for Hole A Dia = 0.451) that line would go across as a constant for all weeks.


Please could somebody see attached and help me understand where I went wrong?

Many Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Helpfinder,

This is actually a previous post of mine, i tried translating the formulas across (successfully on a couple of other spreadsheets) but this one would not work.

Hi Helpfinder,

Thank you, very helpful!

The only thing is, when i put data into the other cells and change the data to the 'A4-A36' rather than A4-A6, it doesn't work?

I will eventually need for a 2014 version 52 rows worth of data!


Many Thanks again,
Kevin
