    Question Last x Months charts with dynamic label for month and year

    Guys,

    I have been working a series of chart and I recently I stumble upon a chart that saves some space on the month and year; Months will start with the first letter and the year will show only one time under the letters of each month.

    Trying to apply this to my reality was a little bit more complicated than I expected, since I canīt manage to have Year and Month to be dynamic along with rest of the data.

    Does anyone here have clue to set a dynamic named range for the XValues to accommodate this? My chart uses the last 12 months and the formula is pretty simple:

    This is the chart example that I intend to use:

    Appreciate all help!

    Without knowing how your data is organized. Hard to help you.

    I'd recommend uploading sample workbook with desensitized data.

    Though I'd strongly recommend using 3 letter code for month. With single letter, there's nothing that differentiates March from May, except for the position of data. This is poor practice in any sort of data visualization/analysis.

    If 3 letter code can be used... you can use Pivot Table combined with Excel table to make it more dynamic.

    Sample attached.

    Thanks for the input. Since I am not a regular on Pivot Table I will take some time to understand it.
