Tryed to use this code to draw a trendline to same color as the chart series but it doesn't seem to be working--the trendline is always black regardless of the series color. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Sub DrawTrendLine()
Dim TrendLineColor As Integer
TrendLineColor = ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Interior.ColorIndex
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Select
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Trendlines.Add(Type:=xlLinear, Forward:=0, _
Backward:=0, DisplayEquation:=False, DisplayRSquared:=False).Select
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Trendlines(1).Select
With Selection.Border
.ColorIndex = TrendLineColor
.Weight = xlMedium
.LineStyle = xlContinuous
End With
End Sub

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

Hi WBS

As you know ColorIndex only allows you to choose from 56 colours. That's why even default columns charts use Color instead, allowing for RGC colour specification.

Please try:

Code:
Sub AddTrendline()

With ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1)
    .Trendlines.Add.Border.Color = .Interior.Color
End With
End Sub

Hope this helps
PGC
