Hello. On the IndividualGraph sheet one can view a graph for each student by selecting the name from the dropdown list. I've got the dropdown list and table index working. Any idea why the graph does not plot on the sheet? Thanks

The results in your table are coming through as text so won't show in the graph.

Two options, change the source data to numbers or enclose the INDEX formula within a VALUE() function:

=VALUE(INDEX(DB_Table,DB_Selected_Learner,C$15))

Thanks

Enclosing the INDEX formula within a VALUE() function works perfectly
