I want to use whatever capability vb 6.0 has to make graph in it using data from an array.
in short:
Data type : xyscatter
X data : xVAlues(20)
Y data: yValues(20)
Min of x axis: -20
MaximumMin of x axis: -20
min of y axis : 20
 max of x axis : 20
Can I use the mschart1 capability to do this task.
Thank you for the anticipated help of all the experts.

I am trying to put a text label on the data points in the mschart1 ..so far I have the following code which does not work

For lRow = 1 To UBound(ChartPoints, 1)
 .plot.SeriesCollection(1).DataPoints(-1).DataPointLabel.LocationType = VtChLabelLocationTypeLeft
 .plot.SeriesCollection(1).DataPoints(-1).DataPointLabel.Custom = True
 .plot.SeriesCollection(1).DataPoints(-1).DataPointLabel.Component = VtChLabelComponentSeriesName
 .plot.SeriesCollection(1).DataPoints(-1).DataPointLabel.Text = T(lRow)
   
Next lRow

None of the above solution worked for me. I ended up opening an excel workbook in vb 6.0 and looking at my graph as if working directly in Excel.
