    Set chtBubble = Sheet1.Shapes.AddChart(xlBubble, 200, 100, 700, 300).Chart
    With chtBubble
        For Each rngCell In rngSource.Rows
            .SeriesCollection(lngSeriesCount).Name = rngCell.Cells(1).Value
            .SeriesCollection(lngSeriesCount).XValues = rngCell.Cells(2).Value
            .SeriesCollection(lngSeriesCount).Values = rngCell.Cells(3).Value

    code is not working… DataLabel.Left = DataLabel.Left – 40…….. syntax error on this line

    1. there is a problem in wordpress font , you can type again this line, will work ok

  2. Also put DoEvents before that line
    For example
    DoEvents: DoEvents
    DataLabel.Left = DataLabel.Left – 40
