    % change between two fiscal years sticky to bars within chart?

    Hi,

    I have recently developed a "dashboard" within an Excel file with huge amount of data to summarize some of the key figures. I have included "buttons" to switch among regions by having a macro changing formulas in the cells where each chart is taking its data from.

    Though, whenever I switch to another country, the % change between two fiscal years moves uncontrollably around (see below), which makes it unreadable/ useless. It would be a pain and not very user friendly to change it manually every time. Is there a way to make the % changes "stick" to the corresponding bar chart? I'm currently using a bar chart (sales value) and line chart (% change), where the line itself is hidden as I just want to see the percentages but on top of the right bar. Is there a way to do that? or does Excel not have such a feature? Does anyone know? been trying to figure this out for quite some time now...

    Not quite sure how the hidden line with percentages is supposed to work. Since you are already using VBA, you should be able to change the text for the bar chart data points. You can hardcode whatever you want. Something like this:
