How to change chart titles and axis VB.Net Excel Charting

I have created a simple chart in a worksheet and need to change the default axis titles but have a problem with syntax.
	
With objChart

   .Name = "Turnover Chart"
   .SetSourceData(Source:=objRange1, PlotBy:=Excel.XlRowCol.xlColumns)
   .ChartType = Excel.XlChartType.xlCylinderColStacked
   .Location(Where:=Excel.XlChartLocation.xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Chart")

   ' THE NEXT LINE THROWS AN EXCEPTION
   objAxis = CType(.Axes(Excel.XlAxisType.xlValue, Excel.XlAxisGroup.xlPrimary), Excel.Axis)

   With objAxis
       .HasTitle = True
       .AxisTitle.Text = "Sales"
   End With

End With

I think the Location line is the problem as it actually returns a new reference to the chart object, so:
With objChart

   .Name = "Turnover Chart"
   .SetSourceData(Source:=objRange1, PlotBy:=Excel.XlRowCol.xlColumns)
   .ChartType = Excel.XlChartType.xlCylinderColStacked
End With
  objChart = objChart.Location(Where:=Excel.XlChartLocation.xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Chart")
With objChart
   ' THE NEXT LINE THROWS AN EXCEPTION
   objAxis = CType(.Axes(Excel.XlAxisType.xlValue, Excel.XlAxisGroup.xlPrimary), Excel.Axis)

   With objAxis
       .HasTitle = True
       .AxisTitle.Text = "Sales"
   End With

End With

I had figured that I had lost the reference to the chart, just couldn't figure out where'

A spot on solution.
