    Excel charts using a cell reference or similar

    Hi

    I would like to know if it is possible to replace a reference number in a chart series to a cell reference.

    Example =$C$(cell ref):$H$(cell ref)

    The plan is to be able to select from a drop down menu and be able to plot a different row based on the request.


    Thanks

    Re: Excel charts using a cell reference or similar

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    There are probably a number of ways to do this
    INDIRECT()
    INDEX()
    Range names

    Maybe if we could see what you are working with, and what you want, we could offere better help?
    To best describe or illustrate your problem you would be better off attaching a dummy workbook. The workbook should contain the same structure and some dummy data of the same type as the type you have in your real workbook - so, if a cell contains numbers & letters in this format abc-123 then that should be reflected in the dummy workbook.

    To attach a file to your post,
    click advanced (next to quick post),
    scroll down until you see "manage file",
    click that and select "add files" (top right corner).
    click "select files" find your file, click "open" click "upload" click 'done" bottom right. click "submit reply"

    Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window.
    You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Sorry for the delay.

    So, what would you want to be able to change the reference to?

    Sorry, meant to explain.

    The time is a drop down menu. When it is changed, the number below the chart changes to a different cell reference (row) number. I would like the chart to alter the plotting to that row.

    Thanks.

    See if the following does what you want:
    1) The formula that populates C19:CQ19 on the Graph(2) sheet is:
    Formula: copy to clipboard
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.

    2) The chart reads the data from C19:CQ19 on the Graph(2) sheet. Note that this row may be moved and/or hidden for aesthetic purposes.
    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Thank you that was brilliant.

    Never thought of adding a new line to show the calculation and then referring to that
