See attached sheet called "Dashboard"
See the country dropdown (around cell E25).

Choose a country !
Now, whatever "Country" you chose will UPDATE cell Calculation!B2  (i.e. in sheet called "Calculation").

How does this update happen since this cell does NOT have a formula.

Hi, 21Dewsbury.

Right-click on the dropdown and select "Format control...". On the"Control" tab, the Cell Link is Calculation!$B$2 - this is what updates the cell. Please see below..

Regards,
Brian..
