Named Range for Column?

I have a sheet with tabular data. I graph the data, one column per chart on a separate sheet. Since the amount of data changes as a project progresses, I have made a macro to change the amount of data shown:

Code:
'
Dim LR As String
Dim LRV As String
Dim LRR As String

LR = Sheets("Gradation and AC").Range("T1")
LRV = Sheets("VMA").Range("T1")
LRR = Sheets("Test Ranges").Range("w1")

ScreenUpdating = False

Sheets("Charts").ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues = "='Gradation and AC'!$A$18:$A$" & LR
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Gradation and AC'!$F$18:$F$" & LR

Sheets("Charts").ChartObjects("Chart 2").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues = "='Gradation and AC'!$A$18:$A$" & LR
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Gradation and AC'!$g$18:$g$" & LR

This continues through each of the columns of data. I have coworkers that like to use workbooks that they know nothing about, and love to delete/insert rows and columns. Is there a way to use a named range, that still varies with the data to make this more foolproof?

Also, if a chart is removed, is there an easy way to have the macro skip it vs. encounter an error?

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Thanks, I think I can work with that to achieve the missing chart aspects. Anyone have ideas on how to keep the correct data on the chart if a column is added or removed, and still keep the variability of the column length?

Thanks.
