    Set the plot area to centre based on cell size

    Hello all

    I have managed to put together a bit of code to resize a pie chart. It seems to work ok when resizing the chart area and will also resize the Plot Area but I would like to be able to then make the pie sit in the centre. This bit of code does seem to do all 3 parts but when it centres the pie it also resizes it back to being very small.

    Is it possible to centre the plot area and keep the required size?

    This is what I have so far.

    The reason I have done this a code is because I am intending to do this for many charts.

    Thanks in advance ofr any advice.

    Cheers

    The plot area is square for pie and donut charts so you only need to adjust Width or Height.

    You may have problem making the plot area the same size as the chartarea.
    Also setting the Width or Height beyond the chartarea size will end up setting the size to the largest one that will fit.

    Hi Andy

    Thanks very much yet again for taking the time to help me. I have tried only adjusting the width of the plot area but I am still left with the problem of the pie being taken off centre.

    I have attached an example to show you what I mean. I have also tried reducing the plot size by the cell width minus 2 or trying to multiply the cell width by 0.8 but both still have the same problem of sending the pie off centre.

    Any ideas of what I can do?

    Thanks

    Jim

    Re: Set the plot area to centre based on cell size

    This is the size that is created when I insert a Pie Chart, The code reduces the chart to the size of cell L8 but I would also like it to place in the centre.

    Thanks again
