            Excel.Range values = worksheet.Range["a33", "a56"];

            Excel.SeriesCollection seriesCollection = (Excel.SeriesCollection)chartPage1.SeriesCollection();

            Excel.Series series1 = seriesCollection.NewSeries();

After changing chart type, it works perfectly fine but its not working for last row text. As shown in image below.

How to&Answers:

Yes, you need to change the chart type.

using Excel = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel;

chartPage1.ChartType = Excel.XlChartType.xlBarClustered

You may have to adjust gridlines depending on how you want them to appear. I can provide more code for that if needed.

Edit – Also, don’t forget to do

chartPage1.PlotBy = Excel.XlRowCol.xlColumns;


I don’t know how but the moment i commented chartPage1.SetSourceData(chartRange1, Type.Missing); in code it works fine, might be possible two data source are set one by commented line and one by series collection.
