Hi, I'm trying to have a drop down list be where you choose what query to run. Let's say that I have a table like this in another sheet:

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. Is this possible?
