Hi all.

I have a document with several views. In every view there is some data to be plotted. Two of those views are working correct. But plotting in the other two views result in an axes error:

hartCoord = "B5:" + ChartDate + "5,B7:" + ChartDate + "15"
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 4").Activate
ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).Select //error in this line
ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select
ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Data").Range(ChartCoord), PlotBy:=xlRows

This line "ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).Select", what does it exactly do? I'm trying to find out what a possible error could be. What are typical errors sources for that line of code?

thanks

It's not necessary to select the value axis (or the ChartArea) to set the Source, so you can remove those 2 lines.

To see what the code would be for selecting the value axis on that chart, record a macro while doing it manually.

Well i deleted those two lines without rewriting anything else. The error is gone. But what are the effects of that change? Is the functionality changed now? I have no idea what those two lines do/did.

As I sid before those lines aren't necessary. They simply select objects on the chart (like if you clicked them).
