Chart.Elevation property (Excel)

Returns or sets the elevation of the 3D chart view, in degrees. Read/write Long.



expression A variable that represents a Chart object.


The chart elevation is the height at which you view the chart, in degrees. The default is 15 for most chart types. The value of this property must be between -90 and 90, except for 3D bar charts, where it must be between 0 and 44.


This example sets the chart elevation of Chart1 to 34 degrees. The example should be run on a 3D chart (the Elevation property fails on 2D charts).

Charts("Chart1").Elevation = 34
