You already have a pretty nice chart showing the difference of 1 month to prev year?

You want a graph showing both months for each department?  You already have the work done for that, just need a graph to reference  Col R and S instead of T.

Check out the equation in R3 and S3.  It utilizes INDEX() and MATCH() formulas referencing the date in R2. The sheet with the chart that has a date dropdown is linked to R2 on the data sheet.

The chart is simply using the data and displaying as a horizontal bar graph. The chart itself is nothing special.

tx - sorry how do I get to view the equation ie what tab do I use etc.
Perhaps you can implement and resend the excel sheet - then I can easily see what you suggest.

The equation is on the first sheet in columns R and S.

I don't know what you want implemented, There's already a chart on the 2nd sheet.
