The Data Labels command does not label the data points in a pie chart. The labels for the sections in a pie chart are the same as their category names.
The Data Labels command is used to label the data points in a Y-series. Using Data Labels, you can display the value next to each data point (shown as markers or bars), or you can label the entire Y-series. Works uses the values in the spreadsheet range that you select to create labels.
To label the data points in a pie chart, do the following:
- Highlight the labels in the spreadsheet you want to use for the data labels.
- From the Data menu, choose X-Series.
The pie chart has the data labels and percentages outside each section of the pie chart. There is no way to remove the percentages from the labels.
To label a bar or a line chart, do the following:
- Select the range of cells containing the labels for the data points or the Y-series.
- From the Data menu, choose Data Labels.
- In the Series list box, select the Y-series to be labeled.
- Choose Create.
