Change Functions With Excel Drop Down List

Last year, I shared a technique for selecting a function name from a drop down list, and that changed the formulas in a summary row on the worksheet. Choose MAX, to see the highest amounts in a lists of sales orders and then choose SUM, to see the total amount in the lists of orders

This techniques runs on formulas, not macros, and is a great way to show different information in a small amount of worksheet space.
