Hi All
I’m using excel 2010. What I have is a workbook with 3 sheets; Summary, RFQEvaluation and OpenPRsAge. The data is contained in RFQEvaluation, Summary has a pivot chart linked to a pivot table in OpenPRsAge. I have written some code that will group the Age in OpenPRsAge by 10 starting at 0 and ending at 50 so there will be 6 chart series. I have also coded that the color of series 1 will be green, series 2 light green, series 3 yellow, series 4 orange, series 5 red and series 6 black. If there is data for each series it works fine. The problem I’m having is that if there is no data for 0-9 then 10-19 will be series 1 and will be green. What I need is for 0-9 to be green, 10-19 light green and so on. So in other words if there is data in 0-9 and NO data in 10-19 and again in 20-29 I need to have 20-29 to be orange and not light green. I have added a workbook.  If all the 2’s are changed to 10 0-9 falls away and the colors are not allocated correctly
Thanks in advance
Elmo

Try changing the code to:
Sub ChartseriesColor()

Dim AgeRange As Range


Application.EnableEvents = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = False


'**To make sure OpenPRsAge is grouped right
With Sheets("OpenPRsAge")
   .PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotCache.Refresh

   Set AgeRange = .Cells.Find("Age")
   AgeRange.Group Start:=0, End:=50, By:=10
   With .PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Age")
      .ShowAllItems = True
      .PivotItems("<0").Visible = False
   End With
End With
'**


'**
Dim Counter
'On Error GoTo myError
Counter = 0
Do Until Counter = 6
    Counter = Counter + 1
    
    
    With Sheets("Summary").ChartObjects("Chart 2").Chart.SeriesCollection(Counter).Format.Fill
        
        If Counter = 1 Then
            'green
            .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(0, 176, 80)
        ElseIf Counter = 2 Then
            'light green
            .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(146, 208, 80)
        ElseIf Counter = 3 Then
            'yellow
            .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 255, 0)
        ElseIf Counter = 4 Then
            'orange
            .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 192, 0)
        ElseIf Counter = 5 Then
            'red
            .ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 0, 0)
        ElseIf Counter = 6 Then
            'black
            .ForeColor.ObjectThemeColor = msoThemeColorText1
        
        End If

    End With

Loop



Application.EnableEvents = True
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Application.ScreenUpdating = True


Exit Sub

myError:
If Err.Description = "Invalid Parameter" Then
    Resume Next
Else
MsgBox Err.Description
End If

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub
