The value of this property must be from 0 through 360, except for 3D bar charts, where the value must be from 0 through 44. The default value is 20. This property applies only to 3D charts.

Rotations are always rounded to the nearest integer.



Although the following code applies to Microsoft Word, you can readily modify it to apply to PowerPoint.

        .Chart.Rotation = 30

    End If
