I am relitivly new to VBA. I have been working with VB 6.0 for some time. But am still getting used to the Excel object model. I have variables in VBA and need to create new data series on both pie charts and bar graphs. I need to create new series in VBA using variables, strat(0), strat(1),,,,, If you have any idea on the line of code needed for this please help.

Why not just do it in Exel with the macro recorder turned on?

I have to create about 80 different charts and it is just easier if I could just pass values to a sub that creates the pie and bar graphs. The code I have tried is:

co1.Chart.SeriesCollection.Add
Source:= strat(0)

This does not work, but I need to use the variables as my series.

If you record one, that will give the basis and with your VB knowledge you should be able to make into a generic function.

There are quite severe limitations on using variables as source data. See:
