    Creating Dynamic Ranges Horizontally

    I can find a lot of information on creating dynamic ranges (mainly for charting purposes), when the dynamic portion is the column.

    I have a column (A) of metrics, and each column after is a month for the corresponding metric


    Metrics | April | May | ...
    -----------------------------------
    Metric #1 | 5 | 4 |
    Metric #2 | 2 | 3 |

    I want to be able to populate the months data as time progresses and have the range accept them, which the chart is pointing to for the series.

    I don't know how to create a series that is dynamic going horizonatally. I googled and only see examples for the inverse.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Maybe ...

    Attach a sample workbook (not a picture or pasted copy). Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Uploaded sample file: Ex_sample_chart_dynamic.xls

    Each row is a separate chart as shown. Oranges, Apples, etc.

    I want to be able to fill the data out to the right as each month passes, and each separate chart update with the new data.
