Check chart properties using openxml

Open original thread
I want to check if property Switch Rows/Columns is enabled or not in a bar chart, while reading it with OpenXml.

What I have tried:

OpenXmlElement sheetdata = sheet.Worksheet.Where(x => x.LocalName.ToLower() == "sheetdata").FirstOrDefault();
List<int> seriesindex = new List<int>();
for (int rowindex = 0; rowindex < sheetdata.Count(); rowindex++)
    Row row = (Row)sheetdata.ElementAt(rowindex);
    if (rowindex == 0)
        for (int colindex = 1; colindex < row.Count(); colindex++)
            Cell col = (Cell)row.ElementAt(colindex);
            if (names.ContainsKey(col.CellValue.Text))
                string seriesname = names[col.CellValue.Text];
                int sindex = Array.IndexOf(chartData.Series.ToArray(), seriesname);

        string col = ((Cell)row.ElementAt(0)).CellValue.Text;
        string catname = names.ContainsKey(col) ? names[col] : string.Empty;
        int categoryindex = Array.IndexOf(chartData.Category.ToArray(), catname);
        if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(catname))
            for (int colindex = 1; colindex < row.Count(); colindex++)
                Cell col1 = (Cell)row.ElementAt(colindex);

                if (seriesindex.ElementAt(colindex - 1) != -1 && categoryindex != -1)
                    col1.CellValue.Text = chartData.Score[seriesindex.ElementAt(colindex - 1)][categoryindex].ToString();



                    //Edit chart object to change chart data
                    ChartSpace chartObj = chartPart.ChartSpace;
