Chart macro

Hi, i have a button command that brings a embedded chart onto my worksheet,
it works fine, so i wanted to write a simple marco to asighn to another
button to delete the chart when i had finished looking at it, this is what
Excel recorded,

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 5029").Activate
ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).Select
ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select
ActiveWindow.Visible = False
Selection.Delete

Now this works as long as the "Chart 5029" number is the same as on the
chart its self ,ie when i left click and put it in a chart window to see what
the number is along the top of the box, so, i press the button, it works, i
call up a chart again with the other button, press the delete button and
error, because the Chart number as changed to one thats different to the one
in the macro. I don't know what the number is for and how to either stop it
from changing ( why does it change ) or to write a macro to adjust for the
change in this number.

Thanks to anyone who can answer this problem....Cheers

Not sure why you want a macro. Select the chart and press the 'Delete' key.

A macro solution will *at the most* save you one keystroke!
