H

huangx06

Hello,

I have a draw chart sub which generates a runtime error "method
seriescollection object_chart failed" from time to time. It doesn't
happen all the time, probaly around 15% of the time. Below is the full
code. I'm running out of ideas now in terms of how to fix the problem.
Please help!!

Thanks a lot

That's almost 300 lines of code to wade through. Any hints about which
line throws the error?

Hi Jon,

Thank you for looking at my problem. I have deleted those lines I think
are not related to the problem. Can you take a look again? Again, my
problem is totally random. It happens no more than 20% of the time.

Thanks again.
