Is there a way to code so charts use Excel 2003...

I am using Excel 2007. I write code that runs a report that has a lot of tabs, pivot tables, and charts that users of Excel 2007 and Excel 2003 both open and view.

The code was written using compatability mode and the report runs fine. It looks great on my computer (or anyone else that has Excel 2007), but when a Excel 2003 user opens the file, the formatting on the charts, especially the bar graphs look strange, especially where the data labels are concerned. I think it has to do with the color differences between the two charts

I would like to write code that forces the use of 2003 colors and formatting. Is there a set of VBA commands that I can use that will accomplish this? Any idea of where I can find sample code?

Thanks in advance for your help!
