October 24, 2008, Newsletter Issue #279: Show exactly what each chart section represents in Excel

Tip of the Week

Excel charts can be great at giving people a general picture of what data represents, but they can also be used to show very specific information.

A value can be shown on each row/column so that the reader can see exactly what the chart is showing. To activate this, select your chart and select Chart Options from the Chart menu. Click on the Data Labels at the top and choose the Show Value option.
