Hello Excelers:

I've been automating some charting with arrays. This bit allows me to create trend charts for X number of series. For some reason this sometimes creates an extra legend entry that contains no data. Has anyone else experience this? or do you see an err in my code? Suggestions welcome.

Thanks,

Sub Charting_TopX()

Dim Brow, SeriesNumber As String

SeriesNumber = Sheets("Charting").Range("A1").Value

With ActiveWorkbook.Charts.Add
End With

For x = 1 To SeriesNumber
Brow = 20 + x

With ActiveChart
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection.NewSeries
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(x).Name = "=Charting!R" & Brow & "C2"
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(x).Values = "=Charting!R" & Brow & "C3:R" & Brow & "C28"
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(x).XValues = "=Charting!R19C3:R19C28"
End With
Next x

ActiveChart.ChartType = xlLine

With ActiveChart
.Location Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Charting"
End With


With ActiveChart
.HasTitle = False
.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).HasTitle = False
.Axes(xlValue, xlPrimary).HasTitle = False
End With
With ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory)
.HasMajorGridlines = False
.HasMinorGridlines = False
End With
With ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue)
.HasMajorGridlines = True
.HasMinorGridlines = False
End With
ActiveChart.HasLegend = True
ActiveChart.Legend.Select
Selection.Position = xlRight
ActiveChart.HasDataTable = False

With ActiveChart
.Parent.Name = "MyChart"
.HasTitle = False
End With

End Sub
