How to set absolute position of a chart in Excel?
Normally, we may place a chart at random when creating or moving it in Excel. However, in some special cases, you may want to place the chart at a precise position, such as begin at Cell A1, stay in Range A1:D5, or else. Here, I will introduce a VBA to set absolute position of a chart in Excel.

For example, you have created a chart and placed it at random in the worksheet as below screenshot shown. Now I will introduce a VBA to quickly move the chart to a precise and absolute position easily.
1. Select the chart you will set absolution position for, and press Alt + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
2. Click Insert > Module, and paste below VBA into the new module window.
VBA: Set absolution position of a chart in Excel
Sub Test() Dim xRg As Range Dim xChart As ChartObject Set xRg = Range("D1:J13") Set xChart = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1) With xChart .Top = xRg(1).Top .Left = xRg(1).Left .Width = xRg.Width .Height = xRg.Height End With End Sub
Note: In above code, Set xRg = Range("D1:J13") means move and place the chart into Range D1:J13. You can change the range as you need.
3. Press F5 key or click the Run button to run this VBA.
Now you will see the chart is moved to the precise position as you specified in the VBA. See screenshot:
