Problems with setting the color of the bar in an MSChart control

Hi all,
I must be doing something very silly. I want to change the
color of the bar in an MSChart Control. I found (and pasted)
the code to do that from http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;177997

The resulting code is:
        ReDim arr(1 to 5, 1 To 2)
         For j = 1 To 5
            arr(j, 1) = j
            arr(j, 2) = j*100
        Next j
       
        With mschart1.Plot.SeriesCollection(1).DataPoints(-1)
            .Brush.Style = VtBrushStyleSolid
            .Brush.FillColor.Red = 255
            .Brush.FillColor.Green = 0
            .Brush.FillColor.Blue = 0
        End With
        mschart1.ChartData = arr()

But whatever the R,G,B combination I use, the bars are always green!!

(:confused)

Any clue? Thank you very much,

rr.

instead of :
            .Brush.Style = VtBrushStyleSolid
            .Brush.FillColor.Red = 255
            .Brush.FillColor.Green = 0
            .Brush.FillColor.Blue = 0

Try this:
.Brush.FillColor.Set 255, 0, 0
