vba – FullSeriesCollection generates "Compile Error: Method or Data Member not found" in Excel 2010

Questions:

I created a macro that adds data labels to the two series in my pivot chart.

Sub Data_Labels_On_Pivot2()
'
' Data_Labels_On_Pivot2 Macro
'

'
    ActiveSheet.Unprotect
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 14").Activate
    ActiveChart.SetElement (msoElementDataLabelCenter)
    ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 14").Activate
    ActiveChart.FullSeriesCollection(1).DataLabels.Select
    Selection.Position = xlLabelPositionOutsideEnd
    Application.CommandBars("Format Object").Visible = False
    ActiveSheet.Protect DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True
End Sub

This works on machines running Excel 2013.

With Excel 2010 .FullSeriesCollection(1) generates an error:

“Compile Error: Method or data member not found”

I googled this topic and was not able to find anything. I did come across the ActiveX issues from the Windows update earlier this year and was not able to find any .exd files on the machine running Excel 2010 that I am testing with.

How to&Answers:

FullSeriesCollection was added in Excel 2013. It isn’t a valid property in earlier versions.

Replace FullSeriesCollection with SeriesCollection, which is valid in Excel 2010.
