Trendlines Object (Word)

Represents a collection of all the Trendline objects for the specified series.

Version Added: Word 2007

Each Trendline object represents a trendline in a chart. A trendline shows the trend, or direction, of data in a series.

Use the Trendlines method to return the Trendlines collection. The following example displays the number of trendlines for series one of the first chart in the active document.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) 
 If .HasChart Then 
 MsgBox .Chart.SeriesCollection(1).Trendlines.Count 
 End If 
End With

Use the Add method to create a new trendline and add it to the series. The following example adds a linear trendline to the first series for the first chart in the active document.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) 
 If .HasChart Then 
 .Chart.SeriesCollection(1) _ 
 .Trendlines.Add Type:=xlLinear, Name:="Linear Trend" 
 End If 
End With

Use Trendlines(Index), where Index is the trendline index number, to return a single TrendLine object. The following example changes the trendline type for the first series of the first chart in the active document. If the series has no trendline, this example will fail.

The index number denotes the order in which the trendlines were added to the series. Trendlines(1) is the first trendline added to the series, and Trendlines(Trendlines.Count) is the last one added.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) 
 If .HasChart Then 
 .Chart.SeriesCollection(1).Trendlines(1).Type = xlMovingAvg 
 End If 
End With
