Stock Chart to change Y Axis automatically

I am good with Excel but have not much experience or knowledge with VBA.

My 10mb files kept crashing. I have a powerful laptop.

I read many sites about chart axis, including peltier. I also read that macros are the cause of many issues, and I guess my apparently faulty macros were the cause. I went from a 10mb file that crashed everyday to a 35mb file that never crashes. In addition, my 35mb macro-free file loads in 30 seconds vs. 4 minutes for my previous 10mb macro version.

I use my spreadsheet to plot charts for stocks. Unfortunately, I have to enter the MIN and MAX for each chart if I want to look at the prices in greater detail. For example, Excel will plot a stock with a range of $30 - $35 starting at 0, so it almost looks like a straight line. Ideally I would prefer a chart range from $29 - $36.

My old macro that I found online worked but may have been the cause of the problem. I found the following "snippet" online. However, I have to click the chart each time, and then run it each time I load a new chart. Also, it doesn't exactly work all of the time. Is there something that I can add so that it automatically selects the one chart on the sheet and assigns the updated y axis MIN (A2) and MAX (A3) automatically?

Thank you,
Erick



If ActiveChart Is Nothing Then ' Error trap to ensure a chart is selected
MsgBox "Please: Select a chart and try again.", vbExclamation

Else

ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).MinimumScale = Range("A2") 'Set min scale to cell A2
ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).MaximumScale = Range("A3") 'Set max scale to cell A3
ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).MajorUnit = Range("A4") 'Set major tick to cell A4
ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).MinorUnit = Range("A5") 'Set minor tick to cell A5

End If
