Hi all,

Is it possible to change the tooltip-text of an excel chart area? I'd like to change it, but hiding will be ok too.

    I have had a careful look and as far as I can make out there is no 'control' in VBA for ToolTips on charts. In UserForms there are tooltips and those are simple to use. So I'm afraid it looks as if you are out of luck.
