 'Declare Docs as Object

  Dim Docs As Object


 'Assigns the Documents collection to the

 'variable named "Docs"

  Set Docs = GrapherApp.Documents


 'Declare Plot As Object

  Dim Plot As Object


 'Creates a new plot window and assigns it to

 'the variable named "Plot"

  Set Plot = Docs.Add(grfPlotDoc)


 'Declare Shapes As Object

  Dim Shapes As Object


 'Assigns the AutoShapes collection to the

  Set Shapes = Plot.Shapes


 'Add Ellipse

  Set Ellipse1=Shapes.AddEllipse( 1, 5, 9, 2, "Ellipse1" )
