I have developed a formula in EXcel that specifies the plot range for a chart in which the number of rows can vary.

I want to use a MACRO in order to adjust the graph to use this named range. This is what I have

Sub chartfix()
'
' chartfix Macro
'

'
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 5").Activate
ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select
ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:="Custrange", PlotBy:=xlRows
ActiveWindow.Visible = False
Windows("ALMV25.xls").Activate
Range("K32").Select
End Sub

I have defined the name custrange as follows:
custrange=OFFSET('Custom Portfolios'!$A$18,0,0,'Custom Portfolios'!$M$1+1,12)

the above macro does not work, as I do not know how to insert custrange as the source data. Please help!
 

Excel Facts

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.
How does it not work?

Code:
Sub chartfix() 
' 
' chartfix Macro 
' 

' 
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 5").Activate 
ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select 
ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Range("Custrange"), PlotBy:=xlRows 
ActiveWindow.Visible = False 
Windows("ALMV25.xls").Activate 
Range("K32").Select 
End Sub
