You refer to the value via the name of the control. If it is multi-column,
you append .column(number) to the name where number is 0 for the first column.

...Bubble Charts Colours go wrong
I have some bubble charts which are maintained by a VB script i wrote.
The script sets up a data series based on a table with custom labels, sizes
and colours for each bubble.
I've now come across a problem that despite my macro setting the colour of
the bubbles correctly and even the sample colour box in >format data series>
patterns showing the colour i want, the bubble does not.

Hi I'm trying to create a bar chart for my company for turnover against
targets. For the targets we want fixed bars, however on the turnover we
wanted the same bars made up different colours, so the colours highlight
where the turnover came from (therefore stacked). Can I have some bars fixed
and some stacked on a chart please?

That probably means that Excel thinks your data are not numeric. If the

starting with C2, enter =ISNUMBER(B2) and copy down to C3:C5. What do you
