Excel 2007 VB To Move & Resize Chart

Hello Experts,

What do I need to modify on the attached code that will capture moving and resizing a chart?  When I look at the macro recorder it only comes up with:
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 6").Activate
    ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 6").Activate
Which generates a 'cannot find defined name' error.  I'm trying to slide the chart to the left and expand it's width.
Thanks
Sheets("Report").Select
    Range("A27").Select
    ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddChart.Select
    ActiveChart.ChartType = xlColumnClustered
    ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Pivot Table Data").Range("A25:B42")
    ActiveChart.Legend.Select
    Selection.Delete
    ActiveChart.SetElement (msoElementChartTitleAboveChart)
    ActiveChart.ChartTitle.Text = "% of Time"
    ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).Select
    Selection.TickLabels.NumberFormat = "0%"
    ActiveChart.SetElement (msoElementDataLabelOutSideEnd)

try adding
    ActiveChart.ChartArea.Left = 150
    ActiveChart.ChartArea.Width = 200

change parameters according to your needs.
