Hi Experts

I have a chart (Chart16) on a worksheet tab (Devices) which I would like to completely hide (including chart titles, legend, values etc. ) if the value in Cell N17 is 0 and display if it's anything else.

Is this possible?

Thanks

You can use VBA for this.  It would be something like this:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
If Range("N17").Value = 0 Then
          Sheets("Devices").ChartObjects("Chart16").Visible = False
ElseIf Range("N17").Value <> 0 Then
           
        Sheets("Devices").ChartObjects("Chart16").Visible = True            
     End If
End Sub

The code to show or hide Chart16 can be as simple as this:
Sub ChartViewer()
With Worksheets("Devices")
    .ChartObjects("Chart16").Visible = (.[N17] <> 0)
End With
End Sub

Open in new window


If you would like the chart visibility to occur automatically, then you could integrate the above code with a Worksheet_Change event macro. The details will depend on whether the value of cell N17 is set by formula or user input.
