Hello all,

I have a table of 20 persons X 26 activities X 52 weeks = 27,040 pieces of data
These are weekly stats, I have created 26 activity charts, each on it's own sheet

On the weekly data sheet with the 27,040 pieces of data, I have 2 filters, one let's select a person, the other the week number (ie 1 to 52)

Now when I select, let's say week 12 for all 20 persons in the data sheet and then go view a chart it looks nice and not to crowded.

The issue is:
The filter selection is on the data sheet, I would like from the sheet where the chart is (26 of them) to be able to make the filter selection having the chart in front of me at all time.

How can I do this?

Found the soluction myself, has I suspected had to use a Pivot table, but had to change my the array I had from 28 column X 1042 rows to a 4 column X 32,200 rows. Where I put the Name and Week in the Axis field, the Activity measured went in the Legend field, finally Amount went in sum Values.

Works great, even the title of the activity measured shows up at top of Chart.

Bonne journée
