Hi All,


I am having a issue with using Auto Filter and making charts. When I create the charts from my data set and then set a Auto Filter on it, whenever I filter the dataset my charts get mixed up as the Data Source is set for a fixed cell range. How can I create my charts so that the Auto Filter will not mix them up when I sort my results?

Thanks for any and all help.

VLOOKUP to Left?
Use =VLOOKUP(A2,CHOOSE({1,2},$Z$1:$Z$99,$Y$1:$Y$99),2,False) to lookup Y values to left of Z values.

Errrm, charts automatically adjust to what you are filtering. So, you actually want to turn this feature off then?

Thx GlennUK for the help. I figured it out, you need to place a empty row between each of the seperate data sets, then set the Auto Filter over the all the Data Sets. For example:

Auto Filter Range
Sales Business Unit 1 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
Sales Business Unit 2 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
Sales Business Unit 3 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
'Empty Row'
COGS Business Unit 1 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
COGS Business Unit 2 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
COGS Business Unit 3 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
'Empty Row'


Where the qoute above represents the Highlighting you do before placing the autofilter. In all other cases the Auto Filter would see one data set without the rows.
