Create Dynamic Charts with Combo Box in Excel

*Disclaimer: For this video I have used data from the Google Merchandise Store Google Analytics which is publicly available.

Combo Boxes in Excel create drop down menu options and dynamically populate tables and charts.

In this video I will show how to create a dynamic mini dashboard in Excel with the Combo Box. The drop down menu will give us the option to select All Devices, Desktop, Mobile and Tablet and the table and charts will dynamically change to reflect the number of sessions and the revenue made for each device or all devices. The date range is January 2017 to June 2017 and the data is broken down by month.

The most important part of creating a combo box is to properly configure the input range and cell link (demonstrated in the video). The other important part if to understand the Index function in Excel. For the combo box the Index function contains an array, which includes the column or certain rows in a column, and a row_num which would be the cell we have selected as a Cell Link. All of these are demonstrated in the video.

Styling and designing is just to give ideas and show you options but you can style it in any other way that suits your reporting.
