Dear Experts:

below code snippet creates ...
... Data labels just for just the first! data series of my stacked column chart and formats them

Is it possible to loop through the SeriesCollection and add/format datalabels for all of the Data Series (stacked column chart)?

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas
Sub LoopingThruSeriesCollection()

Dim MyChtObj as ChartObject

With MyChtObj.Chart
    .SeriesCollection(1).ApplyDataLabels
          With .SeriesCollection(1).DataLabels
               .Position = xlLabelPositionInsideEnd
               .Font.Color = RGB(5, 5, 5)
               .Font.Name = "Verdana"
               .Font.Size = 6
               .NumberFormat = "#."
          End With
End With

Untested, but see if this works:
Sub LoopingThruSeriesCollection()

Dim MyChtObj As ChartObject, i As Long

For i = 1 To ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Count
    With ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(i).Chart
        .SeriesCollection(1).ApplyDataLabels
        With .SeriesCollection(1).DataLabels
             .Position = xlLabelPositionInsideEnd
             .Font.Color = RGB(5, 5, 5)
             .Font.Name = "Verdana"
             .Font.Size = 6
             .NumberFormat = "#."
        End With
    End With
Next i

End Sub
