Query function and drop down list

Query function using drop down list to select data from table


I'm trying to have a drop down list be where you choose what query to run.

Code        Product          Total Sales
A              A                   100
B              B                   200
C              C                   300

What I want to do is I put in a drop down list with the options in it like top seller, top product, etc.then when I choose an option, the chosen query will be run on that sheet, displaying the required data?


You have to create drop down list in Cell E1 and then put the following formula in Cell F1:
=if(E1="Top seller";query(A2:C;"select A where C=" & max(C2:C));if(E1="Top Product";query(A2:C;"select B where C=" & max(C2:C));))

Have a look at the following screenshot:

Now when you change the value in the drop down list in Cell E1:

You will get the updated result in Cell F1:
