Name a Chart Object on a Worksheet by MeGustaXL
Posted: 21 Aug 03

If you want to refer to a ChartObject on a Worksheet in your VBA Macros, it helps if you give it a more meaningful name than "Chart1", which is the typical default name.

To Name a ChartObject, do this:

1. Select any cell on the Worksheet containing the chart.  (This deselects the ChartArea).
2. Hold down Ctrl and click the Chart - its handles will appear as white squares.
3. Click in the Names box and type the name you require, e.g. "SalesForThisMonth".
4. Press Enter.

The ChartObject is now known as "SalesForThisMonth", and you can reference it in VBA.
