What do you want to do?

I am not sure you can do it in the VB 6 IDE. You may have to create the report in the full Crystal designer.

Try this
Click the chart
Click the bar/pie slice you want to change
Right click the selected piece
Click FORMAT PIE SLICE / SERIES RISER etc
CHange the color

I don't believe so.  I have never seen  way to associate a formula or field with the color change
