    this.SetSourceData(Globals.Sheet1.Range["A1", "B5"],
        Excel.XlRowCol.xlColumns);
    this.ChartType = Excel.XlChartType.xl3DColumn;

    Excel.Axis axis = (Excel.Axis)this.Axes(Excel.XlAxisType.xlValue,
        Excel.XlAxisGroup.xlPrimary);

    axis.HasTitle = true;
    axis.AxisTitle.Text = "Sales Figures";

Private Sub SetAxisText()
