Dear Experts:

I would like to create a bar chart using VBA with the following requirements

The range is to be the current region (starting from range("C2"))

The Chart is to be a bar chart (xlBarClustered) to be placed on the currently active sheet

No major gridlines on the value axis, no MajorTickMarks on the Category Axis.

No legend

Help is very much appreciated.

Thank you very much in advance.  

Regards, Andreas
