Here is one example from Peltier Technical Services, Inc..  It will prompt you for the range to put the chart and a range to select for the data.

Option Explicit

Sub CreateChart()
  Dim objChart As ChartObject
  Dim myChtRange As Range
  Dim myDataRange As Range
  With ActiveSheet
    ' What range should chart cover
    Set myChtRange = Application.InputBox( _
        prompt:="Select a range where the chart should appear.", _
        title:="Select Chart Position", Type:=8)
    ' What range contains data for chart
    Set myDataRange = Application.InputBox( _
        prompt:="Select a range containing the chart data.", _
        title:="Select Chart Data", Type:=8)
    ' Cover chart range with chart
    Set objChart = .ChartObjects.Add( _
        Left:=myChtRange.Left, Top:=myChtRange.Top, _
        Width:=myChtRange.Width, Height:=myChtRange.Height)
    ' Put all the right stuff in the chart
    With objChart.Chart
        .ChartArea.AutoScaleFont = False
        .ChartType = xlXYScatterLines
        .SetSourceData Source:=myDataRange
        .HasTitle = True
        .ChartTitle.Characters.text = "My Title"
        .ChartTitle.Font.Bold = True
        .ChartTitle.Font.Size = 12
        With .Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary)
            .HasTitle = True
            With .AxisTitle
                .Characters.text = "My X Axis"
                .Font.Size = 10
                .Font.Bold = True
            End With
        End With
        With .Axes(xlValue, xlPrimary)
            .HasTitle = True
            With .AxisTitle
                .Characters.text = "My Y Axis"
                .Font.Size = 10
                .Font.Bold = True
            End With
        End With
    End With
  End With
End Sub
