    You might be able to do what you want using a pivot table.
    It might be easier to understand what you want if we could see a sample of the Excel file (instructions are in the banner at the top of the page).
    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Re: Line chart, create drop down list where 2 data sets (graphs) is combined in 1 drop dow

    Perhaps this will be of some help.
    The drop down in cell H1 has the "Actual" options (trip in and trip out)
    The drop down in cell H3 has the "Theoretical" options as listed in J1:J4
    Cell A100 is populated using: =IF(H1="ATI","Actual Trip In","Actual Trip Out")
    Note that cell B100 could be similarly populated using the "Theoretical" options.
    A101:A120 are populated using: =IFERROR(IF(H$1="ATI",1/(1/A1),AGGREGATE(15,6,B$1:B$20/(B$1:B$20<>""),ROWS(A$101:A101))),NA())
    B101:B120 are populated using: =INDEX(K$1:AD$4,MATCH(H$3,J$1:J$4,0),ROWS(B$101:B101))
    The chart in S9:Y22 is populated using the data in A100:B120
    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Re: Line chart, create drop down list where 2 data sets (graphs) is combined in 1 drop dow

    Hi again !

    I am wanting to have 2 variants of actual trip in one that compares theoretical volume CEI, and one that compares theoretical OEI.
    Same for actual trip out, actual trip out compared to OEO, and actual trip out compared to CEO

    But that might not be possible to combine 2 data sets in one drop down list ?

    Let's see if this helps.
    Put the pairs of options in cells D100:D103 and have the source of the data validation for cell H1 reference that range.
    Cell H3 can be populated using: =RIGHT(H1,4)
    [Optional] The font could be hidden by changing it to white for aesthetic purposes
    Cell A100 is populated using: =IF(LEFT(H1,3)="ATI","Actual Trip In","Actual Trip Out")
    Cells A101:A120 are populated using: =IFERROR(IF(LEFT(H$1,3)="ATI",1/(1/A1),AGGREGATE(15,6,B$1:B$20/(B$1:B$20<>""),ROWS(A$101:A101))),NA())
    Let us know if you have any questions.
