Hello,

I am trying to create a slicer-controlled excel line chart. Where you can select one series or more within the dataset to display on a line chart. I'm able to create a pivot table and even a slicer but I'm having difficulty trying to put everything together.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Or maybe even an alternative approach. I really just want that the line chart is interactive. I have attached some screenshot below that illustratives what I've been trying to accomplish.

See below screenshots.

Sample of what I'd like the output to be....I want that if I select series A and/or Series B that only those will appear on the chart for the time series.

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Was your slicer created off of your data set tables or from your PivotTable? If from your data set, click on your PivotTable and then create the Slicer from there. The PivotChart should then dance like you want it to.

No I created an additional data table with just the categories listed, so I could illustrate essentially what I'm trying to accomplish. The categories are the "headers" of the dataset but whenever I try to create a slicer based on the data table itself, it only gives me the option of switching the actual numbers and not the categories themselves.

See below.
