July 31, 2009, Newsletter Issue #318: Positioning the chart legend in Excel

Tip of the Week

Most default chart types include a legend and most position that legend at the right hand side of the chart. If that suits you, then fine but if you want to either remove it or reposition it, then you can do so easily.

Select the chart and select Chart Options from the Chart menu. Click the Legend tab at the top.

From this screen you can remove the legend by clearing the Show Legend check box or reposition the legend by choosing any of the Placement options.
