I am using a black and white laser printer, and want to make the three values in the histogram have more contrast. The code I am using is as follows:

ActiveChart.PageSetup.BlackandWhite = True
.
.
.
ActiveChart.FullSeriesCollection(1).Select
With Selecton.FormatFill
.Patterned msoPatternZigZag
End With
.
[two more patterns]
.

I have the columns outlined in black, with the infill in three similar greys. I would like to have one dataset completely in black, another in grey (as now) and the third in white (the latter two with the black outline, as now).
Regrettably I have not been able to find the correct syntax in any of my xl books. Can anyone help me with this, please?

Thank you.

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
