Looping thru named ranges and create charts

Dear Experts:

below code ...
... loops thru all the list objects of the active sheet (data lists formatted as tables)
... and formats the chart

I would like the code to loop through all named ranges instead of list objects (defined tables) and create the charts from them. I got no idea how to rewrite the code.

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

Regards, Andreas
For Each t In ActiveSheet.ListObjects
    Set MyChtObj = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Add _
        (Left:=100, Width:=400, Top:=75, Height:=200)
    
   With MyChtObj.Chart
       .SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Sheet2").Range(t)
            .ChartType = xlBarClustered
            .HasLegend = False
             With .Axes(xlCategory)
                 .MajorTickMark = xlNone
                 .TickLabels.Font.Name = "Arial"
                 .TickLabels.Font.Size = 9.5
             End With
            .SeriesCollection(1).ApplyDataLabels
             With .SeriesCollection(1).DataLabels
                  .Position = xlLabelPositionInsideEnd
                  .Font.Color = RGB(255, 255, 255)
                  .Font.Name = "Arial"
                  .Font.Size = 9.5
                End With
             With .Axes(xlValue)
                  .MinimumScale = 0
                  .MaximumScale = 10
                  .Delete
                  .MajorGridlines.Delete
             End With
    
        End With
  
        With MyChtObj.Chart
            .SetElement (msoElementChartTitleAboveChart)
            With .ChartTitle
                 .Text = "=Sheet2!$B$6"
                 .Font.Name = "Arial"
                 .Font.Size = 12
            End With
        End With
        

        With MyChtObj.Chart.Parent 'Change location so they're not on top of each other
            .Top = Range("A7").Top + i * (MyChtObj.Height + 80)
            .Left = Range("E7").Left
            .Name = "Chart" & i + 1
        End With
        i = i + 1
Next

End Sub

I think what you want it:

Sub Test()
    Dim N As Name
    For Each N In Sheet1.Names
        "do stuff"
    Next N
End Sub

Something like:
   Dim rngNamed As Range, nme As Name

   For Each nme In ThisWorkbook.Names
      On Error Resume Next
      Set rngNamed = nme.RefersToRange
      On Error GoTo 0
      If Not rngNamed Is Nothing Then
         If rngNamed.Worksheet.Name = ActiveSheet.Name Then

            Set MyChtObj = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Add _
                           (Left:=100, Width:=400, Top:=75, Height:=200)

            With MyChtObj.Chart
               .SetSourceData Source:=rngNamed
               .ChartType = xlBarClustered
               .HasLegend = False
               With .Axes(xlCategory)
                  .MajorTickMark = xlNone
                  .TickLabels.Font.Name = "Arial"
                  .TickLabels.Font.Size = 9.5
               End With
               .SeriesCollection(1).ApplyDataLabels
               With .SeriesCollection(1).DataLabels
                  .Position = xlLabelPositionInsideEnd
                  .Font.Color = RGB(255, 255, 255)
                  .Font.Name = "Arial"
                  .Font.Size = 9.5
               End With
               With .Axes(xlValue)
                  .MinimumScale = 0
                  .MaximumScale = 10
                  .Delete
                  .MajorGridlines.Delete
               End With

            End With

            With MyChtObj.Chart
               .SetElement (msoElementChartTitleAboveChart)
               With .ChartTitle
                  .Text = "=Sheet2!$B$6"
                  .Font.Name = "Arial"
                  .Font.Size = 12
               End With
            End With


            With MyChtObj.Chart.Parent   'Change location so they're not on top of each other
               .Top = Range("A7").Top + i * (MyChtObj.Height + 80)
               .Left = Range("E7").Left

            End With
            i = i + 1
         End If
      End If
   Next nme

Dear rorya:

thank you very much for your quick help. I am getting erroneous results but it may be because I am running the code on Excel 2010. This version has a couple of charting bugs.

I will run the code on my machine at my working  place (Excel 2007) and then let you know what happened. Again, thank you very much for your professional support.

Regards, Andreas

rorya:
Great job rorya!!
ok, now it works just fine. But it has nothing to with Excel 2010 and Excel 2007, respectively, as I initially thought.
Thank you very much for your great and professional help. What would I do without this forum?

Regards, Andreas
