Hello All,
can you please help me, I need to create a chart by code only, meaning calling the right dialogs of whole process as in standard toolbar. I need the user to have the option of creating it on the current worksheet only.
Notice, only by code, ad a regard of clicking a button.

10X 10X 10X .
 

Excel Facts

Shade all formula cells
To shade all formula cells: Home, Find & Select, Formulas to select all formulas. Then apply a light fill color.
leshem,

Turn on Your macro-recorder and create a chart.

Explore the recorded code and make necessary adjustment in it.

If You need further help please return to the Board again.

With kind regards,
Dennis

Hi leshem

Have you tried using the Macro recorder?

Goto Tools / Macro / Record new macro

Then prepare a chart in the normal way with your chosen data, switch off the recorder at the end and examine the code.

It should produce something similar to this:<pre>
Sub Macro2()
'
' Macro2 Macro
' Macro recorded 03/10/2002 by Richie
'

'
Charts.Add
ActiveChart.ChartType = xlColumnClustered
ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Sheet1").Range("G13:G17"), PlotBy _
:=xlColumns
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues = "=Sheet1!R13C6:R17C6"
ActiveChart.Location Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Sheet1"
End Sub</pre>

HTH

EDIT: Sorry Dennis - you are too quick for me! ;-

thanks Richie and Dennis.
I already done what you seggested.
Sorry for not making myself clear enough.
I'll try again.
I dont have the standard menu bar and tool bar. there for I dont have the regular option for creating Charts.
What you suggested will create allways the same charts for the application, same location, same size , same sheet and all.
what I want is to create a new menu that performs the option of creating a new chart. meaning - openng the right dialog boxes, basicly, performing by new written code, the standard action of Chart Wizard.
10x 10x :)
