I have a "slicer" object in a Excel 2010 sheet, used to control 2 Graphs. How can I show the selected item name from the Slicer and show it in the graph headline text field ?

Please advice
Thanks
Mik

Found this I can use for part of the task :)
Private Sub Worksheet_PivotTableChangeSync(ByVal Target As PivotTable)
    Dim slItem As SlicerItem

   
    '---Optional: Exclude one or more PivotTables from triggering action
    If Target.Name = "PivotTable2" Then Exit Sub

   
    With ActiveWorkbook.SlicerCaches("Slicer_MyField")
        '---display selected items in the Immediate Window of the VB Editor
        Debug.Print "Visible Slicer Items: "

       
        For Each slItem In .VisibleSlicerItems
            Debug.Print slItem.Name
        Next slItem

       
        Debug.Print "~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"
    End With
End Sub

Second part can be solved with this :)

Sub Macro1()
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1).Chart. _
ChartTitle.Characters.Text = "Text"
End Sub
