Excel Error on  ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1""").Activate

Hi Experts,

How to fix this?
The image below shows the error I get when the macro attempts the line:
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1""").Activate
"Chart 1" is shown on the worksheet, as can be seen,
yet the macro cannot find it (stupid macro).
Google shows this is a common question, yet I haven't found a answer.

 Chart 1 shown, but not found, what gives?

Normally it would be

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate
in single quotes, not "Chart"""

Else pls post your file

Cheers

Dave

Yes,  I found that same thing just after posting the question.  
The Macro recorder put those extra quotes in,  I do not know why.
Thank you
