Zorder issue when calling excel shape.

Whats wrong with the second line of code from the following:

oChart.Shapes.Item("Text Box 4").Select()
 oExcel.Application.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.ZOrder = Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoZOrderCmd.msoBringToFront
I get a "member not found" error which I believe is for the Zorder.  I want to move a text box on my chart to the front. Thanks in advance

For a better understanding of your problem, paste here more of your code, or upload your spreadsheet if its possible.
The syntax shown seems to invalid...

Does it work if you use an explicit value for the Z-order?
 oExcel.Application.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.ZOrder = 0        'msoBringToFront = 0

byundt, I tried using explicit value. same issue.  
lfcbc75, the code is not on the spreadsheet side. Not sure what other code would be useful. There is too much to add but here is some of it.

        Dim oExcel As Excel.Application
        Dim oSheet As Excel.Worksheet
        Dim oWrkBook As Excel.Workbook
        Dim oChart As Excel.Chart
