Dear Experts:

I got more than 50 bar charts on the active worksheet (Excel 2010)

Is it possible by means of macro to alter the titles of these charts as follows:

- Go to the end of each title
- press Shift + Enter to enter a manual line break
- add the following term - New Grading System -

So, for example if one of the titles reads: 'Sales force Appraisal'
After running the macro it should read:

Sales force Appraisal
New Grading System

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

Regards, Andreas

Sub chttitles()
    For Each shp In ActiveSheet.Shapes
        If shp.Type = 3 Then
            shp.Chart.HasTitle = True
            shp.Chart.ChartTitle.Text = shp.Chart.ChartTitle.Text & Chr(10) & "New grading system"
        End If
