In a macro I'm writing I'm trying to locate a data point with a particular label on a Stacked Column chart and change its interior color. Since the point can potentially be in any position, I can't use a static Index. Any advice is appreciated.

If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.

Hi Marty,

Here is an example of some code that does this:

With Worksheets(1).ChartObjects(1).Chart
For i = 1 To .SeriesCollection(1).Points.Count
With .SeriesCollection(1).Points(i)
If .HasDataLabel Then
If .DataLabel.Text = "Hello" Then
.DataLabel.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
End If
End If
End With
Next i
End With

This code looks for a label named "Hello" (case-sensitive) and changes its interior color to red.
