# Formula related procedures in class ChartTitle (Word VBA)

This page presents procedures from class ChartTitle related to the theme Formula: Formula, FormulaLocal, FormulaR1C1 and FormulaR1C1Local

## Formula

Gets or sets a String value that represents the formula of the object using A1-style notation, in English.

For more information about A1-style notation, see How to: Refer to Cells and Ranges by Using A1 Notation.

```
ActiveDocument.Background.Chart.ChartTitle.Formula =
```

## FormulaLocal

Returns or sets the formula for the object, using A1-style references in the language of the user.

If the cell contains a constant, this property returns that constant. If the cell is empty, the property returns an empty string. If the cell contains a formula, the property returns the formula as a string, in the same format in which it would be displayed in the formula bar (including the equal sign (=)). If you set the value or formula of a cell to a date, Microsoft Excel verifies that the cell is already formatted with one of the date or time number formats. If not, the number format is changed to the default short date number format. If the range is a one- or two-dimensional range, you can set the formula to a Visual Basic array of the same dimensions. Similarly, you can put the formula into a Visual Basic array. Setting the formula of a multiple-cell range fills all cells in the range with the formula.

```
ActiveDocument.Background.Chart.ChartTitle.FormulaLocal =
```

## FormulaR1C1

Returns or sets the formula for the object, using R1C1-style notation in the language of the macro.

If the cell contains a constant, this property returns the constant. If the cell is empty, the property returns an empty string. If the cell contains a formula, the property returns the formula as a string, in the same format in which it would be displayed in the formula bar (including the equal sign). If you set the value or formula of a cell to a date, Microsoft Excel checks to see whether that cell is already formatted with one of the date or time number formats. If not, the number format is changed to the default short date number format. If the range is a one- or two-dimensional range, you can set the formula to a Visual Basic array of the same dimensions. Similarly, you can put the formula into a Visual Basic array. Setting the formula of a multiple-cell range fills all cells in the range with the formula.

```
ActiveDocument.Background.Chart.ChartTitle.FormulaR1C1 =
```

## FormulaR1C1Local

Returns or sets the formula for the object, using R1C1-style notation in the language of the user.
