Hi, hoping someone could help or explain

I have a dashboard which has various combo boxs and data validation lists in it.

What i want is to have a master button that say im running off calendar months, i can choose October and everything will change to October, but because i have the cell links in the combox box controls, it will say that October is period 1 not 10.

But at the same time i want the users to still be able to pick a particular month if they wish.....

So they can put in October from the master button, but if they want to look at July they can still do this within a section of the dashboard. Is this possible?

I can get the data validation to look at the master button/cell but then lose the list of months from the dat list within that cell.
