how do I automatically update a text box in a chart?
You can link the textbox to a cell. When you update the cell the textbox
should reflect this.
Select the textbox border and then in the formula bar enter the complete
cell reference, for example,

...Using part of a cell in a chart title
I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be
used from a cell e.g.
"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

I don't know of any way to reliably do what you're after. However, a
better solution would be to create a new toolbar button and attach a
macro that you record (Tools/Macros/Record new macro) applying the
border style, thickness and color that you want.
