Reset default Chart naming

Hi,
When I create a chart, it's 'name' for the first one is "Chart 1", the next is called "Chart 2". If I delete "Chart 2" and create another one, it'll be called "Chart 3". What do I have to do after deleting Chart 2 to reset the naming so that the next one I create will be called Chart 2?

As I type I realise this might sound like a classic case of "why on earth does it matter?", but I'm creating what will become a complex template for something and would like "slot" 1 to match up with chart 1 and so on....

Hope this makes sense. Any assistance gratefully received.

thanks
Lee

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

You can't, other than restarting the workbook, I suspect, but you can always just rename them afterwards.

You know what? I probably should have tried to close and re-open before posting and see if that did the trick. That basically solves the issue for me, so thanks very much.

:rolleyes:
