Dim chartSheet As ChartSheet = workbook.ChartSheets.Add(ChartType.Pie, worksheet("B2:C7"))

' Specify print settings.
chartSheet.ActiveView.Orientation = PageOrientation.Landscape
chartSheet.ActiveView.PaperKind = System.Drawing.Printing.PaperKind.Letter

' Specify page margins.
Dim pageMargins As Margins = chartSheet.ActiveView.Margins
pageMargins.Left = 0.7F
pageMargins.Top = 0.75F
pageMargins.Right = 0.7F
