    Excel : VBA : Chart - Problem setting SeriesCollection.Formula with Named Ranges

    I am trying to copy a template with a chart which has sheet scoped Named Ranges.

    Problem 1: When the (template) sheet is copied, the Named Ranges are created/present for the new sheet ... but the series ranges for the chart are hard coded. That is, they do not use the sheet scoped Named Ranges in the copy of the chart on the new sheet. Tried and failed to work my way around that.

    So ...

    Problem 2: I thought I'd just set up the SeriesCollection formulae based on the Template worksheet/chart. But I seem to be struggling with that too

    I've checked the basics and the sheet, chart, etc., are all as expected. And, if I use the hard coded values, it happily accepts it. However, when I try to set the SeriesCollection formula with Named Ranges, I get an error.

    This fails:

    Am I missing something? Well, I guess I must be, but what?

    Any thoughts, advice, comments, alternative approaches welcome.

    Thanks

    Change the name of your named range for values. The leading underscore is causing the problem.

    OGG. Thanks Andy.

    Would have replied sooner but testing didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped. For some reason, simply changing the name as you suggested didn't work. Nor did changing it to Twenty_Day_MA. Seems I must have had other issues . Whatever, all the other similar constructs worked and I ended up copying one of them and editing it. FINALLY, it works as expected and I can move on.

    Thanks again
