Data Labels are a way to provide additional information about data in your chart. Excel Video 447 shows you how to start using Data Labels. Today I’ll show you what a Data Label is, some options on how where to position Data Labels, and some ways to change the content of a Data Label. Data Labels can provide additional information on a chart that may help you replace a legend or an axis by displaying that information next to points on a chart.
Also watch for some ways to customize Data Labels. If I’m going to reuse this chart next month, I typically won’t make some of these adjustments, but if you’re creating a one-time chart, you might find these tricks handy.
There are some new features in Excel 2013 to make Data Labels more powerful. I’ll show you some of those tricks in the next two Excel Videos. Thanks for watching.
