EE Pros,

I have a graphic that is going to be simple for the right EE Pro.  I've constructed a example of what I'm looking for that keeps the cost/expense number constant while the "helper" cell demonstrates moving from "Conservative", to "Aggressive".  

What I need is the graphic representation that is reflected when the macro is executed.

See if this makes sense.

I suggest using a column chart rather than a line chart.
Column chart
I find nested IF statements confusing, and try to use other approaches to avoid them. In this case, the INDEX function is perfect:
=INDEX(D8:F8,I$4)                'Succinct
=IF(I4=1,D8,IF(I4=2,E8,IF(I4=3,F8)))         'Confusing, isn't it

Byundt,

Thank you!  Well done.  And I'm starting to get the hang of using Indexing.  Great recommendation.

Best regards,
