Chart in Powerpoint changing colour when a certain target is reached.

hi
How in Powerpoint can I set up a chart so that when an element comes in which has exceeded a target it automatically becomes a different colour to its usual colour and ditto for ones that are less than target. For example in the sample I have attached, Gary is way ahead of target and John is way below...

Hi,

Could you be more specific?

Since they are 3 series, what is the target?

EDIT you could use something like this
Sub changeChart()

Set p = ActivePresentation
Set sld = p.Slides(3)
For Each shp In sld.Shapes
    If shp.HasChart Then
        Set cht = shp.Chart
        Exit For
    End If
Next

Set ser = cht.SeriesCollection(1)
aValues = ser.Values
Set pts = ser.Points
For Idx = 1 To pts.Count
    If aValues(Idx) > 100 Then
        pts(Idx).Format.Fill.ForeColor.RGB = vbGreen
    Else
        pts(Idx).Format.Fill.ForeColor.RGB = vbRed
    End If
Next

End Sub
