I am adding a chart in VB and I want it to show the major gridlines
this is my code

ActiveChart.Axes(x1Value).HasMajorGridlines = True
ActiveChart.Axes(x1Value).MajorGridlines.Select
With Selection.Format.Line
.Visible = msoTrue
.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 0, 0)
.Transparency = 0
.Solid
End With

when I run the code i get a run error

'-2147467259 (80004005)'
Method'axes'of object'_chart'failed

it is an XYscatter chart if that makes a difference.
