Default 3 cells are named - how to refere to them in one reference field in a chart

Hi,

I have three cells named and want to use that name in a vba chart procedure
for a xl3DColumnStacked chart

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = sheet1.Range(scol1v)

I used in the procedu
Dim scol1v As String
Let scol1v = "ThreeValues"

Meaningless note:
I used sheet1 as Name and CodeName

In the excel GUI you find the name "ThreeValues" is defined as this
reference:
'sheet1'!$A$1;'sheet1'!$A$4;'sheet1'!$A$6

I thougt it just was to specify the sheet + name, but the debbugger doesn't
like that. what am i doing wrong? Shall I use array() or something? Please
give me a syntax or procedure that works that I can look at...

Regards

You can use code like the following to refer to the range
name for the series . . .

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='filename.xls'!
Rangename"

I'm not aware that you can easily do the same thing for
each individual point within the series. That would imply
that you are trying to chart a group of noncontiguous
ranges within a single series which does not sound too
efficient.

Hope this helps.

Just an unpdate - you can refer to several range names in
your code if you seperate them by commas and keep the
filenames in apostrophies. This example shows two ranges
but I think the syntax is what you're trying to get at for
your three range name question.

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='yourfile.xls'!
Rname1, 'yourfile.xls'!Rname2"
