In the Summary sheet, we will present the scrollable table and chart. By making use of the scroll features, we’ll only display 10 records at a time in both the chart and table. To enable scrolling through the data, we’ll add two scrollbars at the top and right side of the table. In addition, we’ll create a chart that is based on the summarized data, which updates as we scroll through the table.
