    You can do this by a number of methods. The easiest is to use a formula in Excel. THis will hide the value if the checkbox is unticked.

    Assuming the following

    You have 4 rows of data, with 12 cells in each row.

    Your actual data is on a sheet called Source from A1:D12

    Your checkboxes are set to write to Control:A1 to Control:A4, and checked writes a value of 1 to these.

    Then you create a sheet called display and put formul

    if(Control!$A$1=1;Source!A1;"") in Display!A1. Then copy that accross the 12 cells. So Display!A12 would look like if(Control!$A$1=1;Source!A12;"")

    You would then repeat this for each row,. For example cell D1 would be if(Control!$A$4=1;Source!D1;"")

    If you tied your graph to this data, and set it to ignore blanks then it should display dynamically based on the check box.

      Hi Prashant,

      In your fomula you wrote

      =if (Control A1=0,Detination Data,"")

      what is "Detination Data"

      it needs to be 'Source Data'!B2 for 'Destination Data'!A2

      =if (Control!$A$1=0,'Source Data'!B2,"")

      the next cell over C2 should be

      =if (Control!$A$1=0,'Source Data'!C2,"")

      this should be copied accross to M2

      =if (Control!$A$1=0,'Source Data'!M2,"")

      if you where just showing a single line your graph should be tied to 'Destination Data'!A2:M2

      The formula for a second line would be slightly different

      =if (Control!$A$2=0,'Source Data'!B3,"")


      =if (Control!$A$2=0,'Source Data'!M3,"")

      and then your graph should have 'Destination Data'!A2:M3

      hope this helps
