Although the following code applies to Microsoft Word, you can readily modify it to apply to PowerPoint.

The following example sets the category axis title text for the first chart in the active document.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1)

    If .HasChart Then

        With .Chart.Axes(xlCategory)

            .HasTitle = True

            .AxisTitle.Caption = "1994"

        End With

    End If
