Using Excel 2007, I am trying to utilize the INDEX function directly within the Series Value box for charts. I watched your Youtube video and successfully created a defined names that contained the formula:

='IS History'!$E$10:INDEX('IS History'!$10:$10,Num_Hist_Months+4)

Using a defined name (C_hist_GRev) in the Series Value box to refer to the above formula produced the chart as desired. Excel converted the formula to:

='Master Business Model.xlsx'!C_hist_GRev

I have many variables to chart and numerous charts. I would prefer to use the above formula directly in the Series Value box, rather than having to create an immense number of defined names. Is it possible to utilize the formula directly in the Series Value box? EVERY attempt to date produced an error message. My charts are contained within the worksheet named ‘Charts-Income Stmt’.
