Adding Data Labels to a Chart

Microsoft Graph is a simple graphing program provided with Word. It includes the ability to view your graph data in both spreadsheet and graph formats. One of the finishing touches you can add to your chart is to include data labels. These are simply text that indicates the numbers represented by the chart element. You can also use series labels as your data labels.

You can add data labels to your chart by following these steps:

  1. Select Chart Options from the Chart menu. Microsoft Graph displays the Chart Options dialog box.
  2. Make sure the Data Labels tab is selected. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Data Labels tab of the Chart Options dialog box

  4. Use the radio buttons to select the type of data label you want to display. (Some data label types might not be available based on your chart type.)
  5. Click on OK. Microsoft Graph adds the data labels to your chart.
