I'm sorry if this is an easy one but I just can't figure
I have a worksheet with 3 charts on it. I need to write
some VBA to select each chart in turn and change its axis
So I figured the first thing to do is to name the charts
so that I can select them properly in the VBA. But how do
I name a chart??? If I select the chart I get "Chart Area"
in the name box and I can't edit it.
Many thanks for any help,

I tried to create a new entity "new_InvoiceDDI" with a display name of

Why is this? Anyone know a way around it?
There's no way around it except renaming the existing invoice entity to
something else. One obvious reason is the Outlook Client. It uses the
display names to show folders, but folders needs to have a unique name. The
web client uses the display names as well, so how can a user differentiate

Where did you want to change them (cards, trx, history, etc). There are

you are trying to accomplish by changing classes.

Our naming convention has changed, and requires changing the names of all

Can someone tell me what the pros and cons are (if any) of these 2 ways
of naming a range.
ActiveWorkbook.Names.Add NAME:="HOME", RefersTo:=ActiveCell
Dim HOME As Range
Set HOME = ActiveCell
It seems to me that the first method creates a named range that is
essentially meaningless to the user and is only used for VBA processing.
Additionally, if you don't write code to delete the named range it will just
sit there in the workbook waiting for somebody to ask what it means.
The second alternative is a clea..."Name Conflict" when Excel 2007 open an old worksheet

I'd like information on how you can view the name/reference for the source
data of a Pivot Table. For Example, in MS Access and Cognos Impromptu you
can go to SQL view and see where data in a Query is coming from. It's easy
to find the source of formulas in Excel, using the Audit Toolbar. I'd like a
way to quickly view the file name (whether an Excel file or external source)
and field names that were used to create the Pivot Table.
