Using Combo box at the backend


I am using combo box at the backend to filter rows to a particular destination.

The problem is the labels are going to populate at the runtime and the selection of item in combo box is also going to populate at the run time. I have an icon which inserts eg: country in a cell, then this cells is used by combo box as a item selection(label) to filter rows from source. But unfortunately the comb box is not selecting any value i.e no item is selected dynamically. But if i manually drill down it is working but the label is not changing dynamically based on the changes in label by icon.

For eg my data:

Country and profit populate at run time

Country          Profit

India               5000

Germany        4000

Now i have icon which selects country (hard coded in excel) upon clicking the mouse on it and inserts in A1 suppose the value hardcoded is "India". Now this A1 is used as a "selected item" for combo box. the source to combo box is the above country and profit which populates at run time.

Now when i execute the dashboard. The value is inserted in A1 after clicking the icon but it is not picked up by combo box as "item selected" and hence combo box does not filter any data.

Can any pls help.

Thank you. I will award full points for correct solution.
