    Change dynamically a picture on a worksheet based on a value from a dropdown list

    Hi,

    I would like to change dynamically a picture on a worksheet based on a value from a dropdown list. I found online 2 ways that seems to fit my problem. However, I can't seem to make either of them work.

    My dropdown list is located on my first worksheet named "Product Dashboard" in cell D20.
    It refers to a list of bottle names in another worksheet called "Bottle" in cell: "A2:A50"
    In the same worksheet "Bottle" in cell: "K2:K50" I have a serie of bottle picture corresponding to the bottle names of A2:A50.
    I would like to make the bottle picture corresponding to the value in the drop down list appear dynamically approximatley around the L20:N26 area in the "Product Dashboard" worksheet.

    See pictures enclosed.Excel question sc 1.jpgExcel question sc 2.jpg

    the 2 methods that I found online and can basically understand involve named range:
    https://exceloffthegrid.com/automati...hange-picture/
    https://www.extendoffice.com/documen...e-in-cell.html

    in Formula/new name, I tried to define a new range "Bottleimagelookup" referring to either one of these 2 formulas:

    =INDEX(Table1[Picture],MATCH('Product Dashboard'!$D$20,+Table1[Bottle Name],0))

    or

    =INDIRECT(ADDRESS(2-1+MATCH('Product Dashboard'!$D$20,+Table1[Bottle Name], 0), 11))

    However, each time, excel tells me: "We found a problem with this formula. Try clicking Insert Function ,etc." (see picture enclosed).Excel problem sc.PNG

    Do you know what is it that I am doing wrong? Would you know how to correct the formulas above or have a way that could solve my initial problem?

    Thanks in advance for you help!

    Thank you for your feedback. I guess it's good to have multiple resources in the same place with your link and the links that I posted above together. I wish I spoke russian though...
