    How do you add axis labels and titles to a Chart via VBA?

    I want to use the name that is on the sheet as a title. Same thing with the axis. I have no idea how to even label the axis.

    I get an error with this. When I change it to .ChartTitle.Text = "Apples" , it works fine. I was hoping it would work because my dataTitle was declared as a String.

    I'm not sure why it errors on your chart title. The code you have should work. What text is in sheet2.Range("B1") ?

    This should add the X and Y axis labels.

    Surround your VBA code with CODE tags e.g.;
    [CODE]your VBA code here[/CODE]
    The # button in the forum editor will apply CODE tags around your selected text.

    Thanks AlphaFrog. For some odd reason, I found out that the code works when I am not active in sheet2. I have to be in another tab. Otherwise, if I selected a cell from sheet2 and then run the macro, I get this error:

    Run-time error '-2147024809 (80070057)':

    This object has no title.


    Do you have any ideas of why this may be?

    Also, thanks for the code regarding the axes labels.

    Sheet2 is a reserved keyword in VBA.
    Try using a different variable name other than sheet2 (try sh2).

    Alternatively, you don't really need the worksheet variable.
