    Dynamic chart with dynamic input

    Hi Excel Forum,

    I am trying to make a dynamic chart for a dashboard like a graph.

    Problem is that the chart needs to exclude #N/A from the chart
    the input for the chart is in one tab (Data IN)
    and fetched to another sheet (Data Out) where the chart is allocated.

    The problem is the inputs are everchanging and need to resize (Gap out #N/A and 0) every time a new Task is fed into the (Data Out) sheet.

    - My goal is to exclude and don't have any gaps every time a #N/A or zero is located in the (Data Out) sheet.

    Thanks

    Lasse

    You've got already nicely created dynamic ranges. Put them for series data instead of 'manual' ranges.

    Instead of:

    write like:

    use F3 to get list of named ranges, then select and click OK.

    Re: Dynamic chart with dynamic input

    Not sure why you need 'Data Out' sheet...

    At any rate, you can create dynamic named ranges with following construct (or just use the ones you already have).
    Chart_Category:
    ='Data Out'!$A$2:INDEX('Data Out'!$A$A,AGGREGATE(3,6,'Data Out'!$A$A))

    Then go into Select Data of chart. Edit Axis Label range as 'Data Out'!Chart_Category

    Note: To use named ranges in chart, you need to prefix name with 'Sheet Name'! (if range context is workbook, it will auto adjust to workbook name).

    Do the same for each data series.

    See attached sample.

    Re: Dynamic chart with dynamic input

    Hi both,

    Thank you very much for your help.
    I think my question could be clearer. Both of you tweaks work, however, I am still generating 0 or #N/A if NA() is used
    The problem is I have multiple lists (named and used as arrays) with data that needs to be used in the chart separately.
    see fx. list one marked with red and list three marked with black.
    under the dropdown, I have marked twenty cells, room enough for even the longest of the lists.
    however, when inserting and using list one in the dropdown it will result in 11 zeroes or not empty cell which then will result in a gap at the end of the chart.

    That's the dynamic input part of the question.
    I don't know if this is possible or if I am stretching the capabilities of XL.

    Thanks,

    Lasse

    It isn't clear to me what exactly is the issue and how your actual file is structured. Image and the workbook you uploaded does not match.

    I'd recommend uploading file that accurately reflect your workbook set up.

    Hi again,

    A new workbook i uploaded.
    As I said I want the zeroes after the list to not be a part of the chart.

    br,

    Check attached file.
    I do not know what expected final result but so far it should be what you expect.
