Have chart using with three data series. I want it to auto-update and so am trying to apply Offset function which I have used in past successfully.

I have data from A21 to G274: A=Date, B=Calls Offered, C=Calls Handled, D=Calls Abandoned, etc. Am excluding header as have summaries above data.

In my chart my first series is Call Offered and have tried to use this formula: =OFFSET('AIM 2006'!$b$21,0,0,COUNTA('AIM 2006'!$b:$b)). When attempt use get "That Function Not Valid".

Would appreciate some help for inspite of checking Walkenbach still I do not realize my error. Obliged.

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Are you inputting the formula directly into the chart? I've not tried it before, but have you tried naming the offset range and applying it to a chart using the name?

I've gone two routes:

1. Directly into the chart's Source Data dialog box, Value's field
2. Via Insert Defined Name
