    ChartObject.Chart run time error

    Hello!
    I am officially new to the forum, but I have been browsing as a guest for a few weeks as I learned and developed my first VBA macros!

    Hear me out on this one, the history of how I got to this point may be important.
    • I created a script in MS Project that outputs data to a specific MS Excel macro enabled template. I then created a script in that MS Excel template which process and charts the data. Although a bit cumbersome, everything worked great!
    • Now I am trying to put all functionality into the MS Project script, including the data processing and the charting in Excel.
    • Everything is working very well up to this point, but I am stuck at the chart object and chart. I am mystified as the code run is identical to what I had in the Excel based script, which mirrors a a tutorial about charting which I followed (successfully).

    Yes, I did reference the Microsoft Excel 16.0 Object Library in the MS Project VBA.

    Any ideas? Like I said, I'm fairly new to this.
    Let me know if you see anything obvious, or need some additional information or attachments.
    Thanks in advance!

    Re: ChartObject.Chart run time error

    Does it make any difference if you fully qualify the objects?
    I can not test as I do not have MS Project

    Hi Andy,
    Thank you for taking the time to review this code. You were correct!

    As soon as I implemented, I found that there was an error thrown on the next few lines, where I start to work with the Chart series.
    Below is a description of the error and how I was able to resolve it. Perhaps someone else will be able to use this information in the future.

    Voila! I am certainly learning a lot. I guess the references were mixing up the compiler since MS Project has a chart object as well? I am not sure.
    I will mark this thread as solved from here on out.
