Code bugs when trying to color the font of the xlValue Axis

I recorded a macro to color the font of the  ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue) (or Vertical (Value) Axis?) white. But when I then try to run it it bugs giving me this error: "Method 'TextFrame2' of object 'ChartFormat' failed" what should line 3 of my code be?

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 25").Activate
    ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).Select
    With Selection.Format.TextFrame2.TextRange.Font.Fill
        .Visible = msoTrue
        .ForeColor.ObjectThemeColor = msoThemeColorBackground1
        .ForeColor.TintAndShade = 0
        .ForeColor.Brightness = 0
        .Transparency = 0
        .Solid
    End With

John,

This a bug in excel 2010 that the values doesnt get stored..You can do something like this...

    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 25").Activate
ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).Select
    With ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).TickLabels.Font
   .Color = RGB(255, 0, 0)
    End With
