expression A variable that represents a Series object.

Return Value



The InvertColorIndex property enables you to set the fill color for negative data points as a color index value from 0 to 56. Instead of using the InvertColorIndex property, you can use the InvertColor property, which enables you to set the color as a specific numeric, hexadecimal, octal, or RGB color value.

For the InvertColorIndex property to have an effect, the InvertIfNegative property of the Series object must also be set to True.


The following code example sets the fill color of negative data points in the first series of chart 2 to magenta.

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 2").Activate

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).InvertIfNegative = True

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).InvertColorIndex = 7
