Adding Individual Data Labels
Tip: If a data label doesn’t have exactly what you want, you can click inside it and edit the text, just as you
do with a chart title.
Right-clicking a data label gives you a choice of formatting options (choose Format
Data Labels). It’s almost always a good idea to format your labels so they stand out
and don’t crowd other information on the chart.
Tip: Instead of using data labels, you can add arrows and text boxes anywhere on a chart to call out
important information. To do so, you need Excel’s drawing features, explained in the next chapter.
