VBA chart

Can you write the VBA code for creating a chart automatically?

RE: VBA chart

Hi Pierre

Thanks for your question

The following procedure is taken from our advanced course and creates a chart automatically from data on a worksheet and then formats it

Sub ColumnClustered()

Dim aChart As Chart
Dim intRows As Integer
Dim intColumns As Integer


Set aChart = Charts.Add

intRows = Sheets("Employee List").Range("N3").CurrentRegion.Rows.Count
intColumns = Sheets("Employee List").Range("N3").CurrentRegion.Columns.Count

Set aChart = aChart.Location(Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Employee List")

Sheets("Employee List").Select

With aChart

.ChartType = xlColumnClustered
.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Employee List").Range("N3").CurrentRegion
.HasTitle = True
.ChartTitle.Text = "Salary Per Job Title"

With .Parent

.Top = Range("A20").Top
.Left = Range("A20").Left
.Name = "SalesAnalysis"

End With

End With

End Sub
