Mike,
I had never seen this before. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

To view the Locals pane, do the following:
1.  Create an embedded chart (i.e. somewhere on a worksheet)
2.  ALT + F11 to go to the VBA Editor
3.  Dismiss the Immediate pane by clicking the X at its upper right corner. Make sure there is room underneath the code pane for the Locals pane. Resize it if necessary.
4.  View...Locals to display the Locals pane
5.  Put a macro in the code pane that references your chart. I used the following:
Sub test()
Dim cht As ChartObject
Set cht = Worksheets("Sheet2").ChartObjects(1)
End Sub

Open in new window

6.  F8 to step through the code
7.  When you get to any statement after the one that Sets cht, click the + in the Locals pane next to cht
 Locals pane in my VBA EditorBrad
