Changing Chart Labels
A legend is a set of text labels that helps the reader connect the colors and patterns in
a chart with the data they represent. Legend text is derived from the data series plotted
within a chart. You can rename an item within a legend by changing the text in the data
series. If the legend chart location doesn’t work with the chart type, you can reposition the
legend at the right, left, top or bottom of the chart or overlay the legend on top of the chart
on the right or left side. Data labels show data values in the chart to make it easier for the
reader to see, while a Data table shows the data values in an associated table next to the
chart. You can have data labels appears as callouts ( New ! ) or just about any shape ( New ! ),
and even add leader lines ( New ! ) to them. You can use the Format tab under Chart Tools
to change and format data labels. If you want a customized look, you can set individual
options using the Format pane ( New ! ).
