Hi,

I've a worksheet with several rows of two charts. I try to delete and add new ones, but therefore I need their names. So what I do is, each time I rename all these charts in the following way:

Code:
For i = 1 To ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Count
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(i).Name = i
Next i
Problem:
I can have the following situation (in Chart names):
1 2
3 4
. . (none)
5 6

Then I add two charts at 'line' 3 and I change ALL the chart names into a string (not a number). And then I run the given For loop in order to achieve this:
1 2
3 4
5 6
7 8

But what I get is:
1 2
3 4
7 8
5 6

It seems as if Excel remembers where I inserted them...

Anyone have a clue on what I could try to come around this?

It's not clear what you wish to do here. However, the order of the charts is not important if you refer to them by name. But, if you have to then this code will activate each chart in order.

Code:
Option Explicit
Sub test()
    Dim i
    For i = 1 To ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Count
       ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(i).Name).Activate
    Next i
End Sub
