Editing data labels
After adding data labels to a series, you can apply formatting to the labels by using
the Format Data Labels dialog box. This dialog box lets you specify the background
color, borders, font style, number format, and alignment. For some chart types, you
can specify the position of the data labels relative to the data point. This is done
using the Label Position drop-down control in the Alignment tab.
Figure 4-33 shows an XY chart in which the data labels substitute for the series
markers. In this chart, the markers were set to none, and the data labels were
positioned using the Center option.
