Hi,

See example

With class Module named CHighlightPoint
Public WithEvents cht As Chart
Private Sub cht_MouseDown(ByVal Button As Long, ByVal Shift As Long, _
                            ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long)
  HighlightPoint x, y
End Sub

Private Sub HighlightPoint(ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long)
Dim ElementID As Long
Dim Arg1 As Long
Dim Arg2 As Long
Dim SeriesAddress As String
Dim ArrRange As Variant
  
  cht.GetChartElement x, y, ElementID, Arg1, Arg2

  If ElementID = xlSeries And Arg2 <> -1 Then
    Set ser = cht.SeriesCollection(Arg1)
    SeriesAddress = Split(Split(ser.Formula, ",")(2), "!")(1)
    FirstCell = Split(SeriesAddress, ":")(0)
    Set Rng = Range(SeriesAddress)
    ArrRange = Rng
    If UBound(ArrRange, 1) > UBound(ArrRange, 2) Then
        Set myCell = Range(FirstCell).Offset(Arg2 - 1)
    Else
        Set myCell = Range(FirstCell).Offset(0, Arg2 - 1)
    End If

    Rng.Interior.Pattern = xlNone
    myCell.Interior.Color = vbYellow
  End If

End Sub

Open in new window

and module code use ActivateChart to be able to Highlight the points
Global gclsHighlightPoint As New CHighlightPoint

Sub ActivateChart()
  If Not ActiveChart Is Nothing Then
    Set gclsHighlightPoint.cht = ActiveChart
  Else
    MsgBox "Select a chart and try again.", vbExclamation, "No Active Chart"
  End If
End Sub

Sub DeactivateChart()
  Set gclsHighlight.cht = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window
