Loop Through & Make Changes To All Excel Charts In The ActiveWorkbook

Loop Through & Make Changes To All Excel Charts In The ActiveWorkbook

What This VBA Code Does

Keeping all your charts perfectly formatted can be extremely tedious work!  It's much easier to make formatting changes with a VBA macro.  The below VBA code shows you how to loop through and make changes to all the created graphs in your active Excel workbook. 

Note that there is a line in the VBA code that activates each chart.  This is because certain formatting tweaks must be made using ActiveChart instead of using the code's variable cht.  Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions concerning this!

Sub LoopThroughCharts()
'PURPOSE: Loop through every graph in the active workbook
'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com/The-Code-Vault

Dim sht As Worksheet
Dim CurrentSheet As Worksheet
Dim cht As ChartObject

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.EnableEvents = False

Set CurrentSheet = ActiveSheet

For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
  For Each cht In sht.ChartObjects
    'Do something with the chart...
  Next cht
Next sht

Application.EnableEvents = True

End Sub
