I'm looking at autogenerating a department document and I want to auto generate a chart in this report. The code I got from the internet produces a dated looking chart but I want to be able to use more modern chart. I can find a way of changing styles for Tables but I cant see how I can change a style for a Chart. I'm guessing its something to do with me using MS Chart 8.0 instead of the latest version.

I can see plenty of articles using chart controls in applications but I have to generate this chart in word Programmatically

Code I currently use:
           Word.InlineShape oShape;
            object oClassType = "MSGraph.Chart.8";
            wrdRng = oDoc.Bookmarks.get_Item(ref oEndOfDoc).Range;
            oShape = wrdRng.InlineShapes.AddOLEObject(ref oClassType, ref oMissing,
                ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing,
                ref oMissing, ref oMissing, ref oMissing);
            //Demonstrate use of late bound oChart and oChartApp objects to
            //manipulate the chart object with MSGraph.
            object oChart;
            object oChartApp;
            oChart = oShape.OLEFormat.Object;
            oChartApp = oChart.GetType().InvokeMember("Application",
                BindingFlags.GetProperty, null, oChart, null);
            //Change the chart type to Line.
            object[] Parameters = new Object[1];
            Parameters[0] = 4; //xlLine = 4
            oChart.GetType().InvokeMember("ChartType", BindingFlags.SetProperty,
                null, oChart, Parameters);
            //Update the chart image and quit MSGraph.
                BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, null, oChartApp, null);
                BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, null, oChartApp, null);

Would be much appreciated if someone can point me in the right direction
