    Dim dzSeriesDropZone
    Dim ChConstants

    Set chConstants = Chartspace1.Constants

    ' Set a variable to the series drop zone in Chartspace1.
    Set dzSeriesDropZone = ChartSpace1.DropZones(chConstants.chDropZoneSeries)

    ' The next three lines of code format the button of the drop zone.
    dzSeriesDropZone.ButtonBorder.Weight = chConstants.owcLineWeightMedium
    dzSeriesDropZone.ButtonInterior.SetSolid "Red"
    dzSeriesDropZone.ButtonFont.Size = 14

    ' The next three lines of code format the watermark of the drop zone.
    dzSeriesDropZone.WatermarkBorder.Color = "Red"
    dzSeriesDropZone.WatermarkFont.Color = "Red"
    dzSeriesDropZone.WatermarkInterior.SetSolid "Green"
