Hello,

I've already got the following code, I would like to know how I can set the colours of the 3 different seriescollections (ranges) in the chart.
Thnx in advantage.

  Dim objXLRange As Excel.Range
  Dim objXlChart As Excel.Chart
 
  Set objXLRange = excWS.Range("B35", "E37")
  Set objXlChart = excWS.ChartObjects.Add(50, 40, 300, 200).Chart
 
  With objXlChart
    .ChartType = xlLine
    .SetSourceData objXLRange, xlRows
    .HasTitle = True
    With .ChartTitle
      .Characters.Text = "prestaties t.o.v. gemiddelde"
      .Font.Size = 16
      .Font.Name = "Verdana"
    End With
    With .SeriesCollection(1)
      .ApplyDataLabels Type:=xlDataLabelsShowValue
    End With
    With .SeriesCollection(2)
      .ApplyDataLabels Type:=xlDataLabelsShowValue
    End With
    With .SeriesCollection(3)
      .ApplyDataLabels Type:=xlDataLabelsShowValue
    End With
  End With

I would like to change the colour of the lines in the graph, not of the original rows in the excel sheet.

.SeriesCollection(2).Border.ColorIndex = 50            makes the line green!

You can get this code by recording a macro in Excel and then see the code in VBA, like you
can find out may other methodes to do things programmatically in Excel!
