Re: MultipleColors Property, Bar or Pie Chart

How many series does your chart have ? In a PIE chart, each series is

represented by a separate PIE.

If you have one series (one PIE) and multiple colors, you must do:

objChart1.OpenDataEx COD_COLORS, nSlices,0 ' Last parameter is ignored


for i = 0 to nSlices-1

objChart1.Color(i) = RGB(0, 0, 255) 'from the help on .Color

next i

objChart1.CloseData COD_COLORS

You do not need to use MultipleColors unless you have more than one PIE and

one to color them independently, in this case you must do:

objChart1.OpenDataEx COD_COLORS, nSlices*nPies,0

The first color will be the first slice of the first pie, the second will be

the second slice of the first pie, and so on.

I'd like to control the color of the sections of a pie chart. I've been

unsuccessful with either a Pie or Bar chart.

It seems the following should color the 6th slice/point, but doesn't work.


nSeries = 1

nPoints = 13

objChart1.MultipleColors = True

objChart1.OpenDataEx COD_COLORS, nSeries, nPoints

objChart1.Color(0 + (5* 1)) = RGB(0, 0, 255) 'from the help on .Color

objChart1.CloseData COD_COLORS
