Parameters

Name Required/Optional Data type Description
varSource Optional Variant The source data for a new chart. If the varSource argument is omitted, Project edits the active report or the selected chart on the active report.
varGallery Optional Variant One of the constants of the Office.XlChartType enumeration, which specifies the chart type.
varFormat Optional Variant The option number for the built-in autoformats. Can be a number from 1 through 10, depending on the gallery type. If the varFormat argument is omitted, Project chooses a default value based on the gallery type and data source.
varPlotBy Optional Variant Specifies whether the data for each series is in rows or columns. Can be one of the following Office.XlRowCol constants: xlRows or xlColumns.
varCategoryLabels Optional Variant An integer that specifies the number of rows or columns within the source range that contain category labels. Values can be from 0 (zero) through one less than the maximum number of the corresponding categories or series.

Remarks

You can use the ChartWizard method to quickly format a chart without setting all the individual properties. This method is noninteractive, and it changes only the specified properties. TheAutoFormat method can do the same job as a call to ChartWizard that uses only the varGallery and varFormat parameters.

If the Source parameter is omitted and the selection isn't an embedded chart on the active report, or the active report does not contain a chart, the ChartWizard method fails and an error occurs.

Example

The following example reformats the chart on the active report as a line chart, adds a legend, and adds category and value axis titles.

Sub TestChartWizard()
    Dim chartShape As Shape
    Dim reportName As String
    
    reportName = "Simple scalar chart"
    Set chartShape = ActiveProject.Reports(reportName).Shapes(1)
    
    chartShape.Chart.ChartWizard varGallery:=xlLine, varHasLegend:=True, varCategoryTitle:="Task", varValueTitle:="Hours"
End Sub
