    'Dynamic' image feasibility question

    Hi all,

    I am not sure how feasible my plans are, but if they are if someone could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

    What I'm looking at doing is having a dynamic image (lets say a map) where if someone clicks / rolls mouse over a specific area (within a specific countries borders) data comes up about that country (for example, a companies performance within that country, or stats about that countries population, etc.).

    How feasible is this? What I'd ideally like is to be able to do this but have the data that is shown as a lookup field, with one sheet sourcing data from the company database and then a macro / vlookup to find the information relevant to that country, to make the file remain live.

    One hiccup I thought could occur is the mouseover, but what I thought I could do is (as I have photoshop) take the map, and make each country a seperate image, so then I could have the mouseover/click code based on the individual image of that country.

    I hope this is fully explained, and any help is much appreciated, thanks.

    Re: 'Dynamic' image feasibility question

    You haven't told us what version of Excel you're using.
    In 2007, insert the image of the country, right-click on it > Assign Macro > Record, give it a sensible name, then select cell A1 and type in the name of the country, then hit 'enter'. On the Developer tab, 'Stop Recording'.
    Only difference for 2003 is to use the 'Stop Recording' button on the macro toolbar.

    Do that for each country, and you've created a map on which, if you click, it fills in the input cell A1 for you. You can then write all your formulae on the sheet to extract data for that country.

    Would be a good idea to put data validation on the input cell, to make sure valid values are typed, if that's how they choose to do it.
