I'm running the Data Analysis ToolPak and having one of the chart options created. I now would like to move that chart to a specific cell. This works fine when I know the name of the chart, but I won't know the name as it is generated thru the Data Analysis ToolPak.

VBA Code:
Sub MoveChart()
    Sheet1.Shapes("Chart 47").Left = Sheet1.Cells(24, 8).Left
    Sheet1.Shapes("Chart 47").Top = Sheet1.Cells(24, 8).Top
End Sub

It will be the only shape on the sheet.

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.
