Adding Scale Labels to Your Chart

Version 11


By default, value and category scales in charts do not have titles indicating what is being measured. Often, scale titles are not necessary because the data or chart title indicates what is being measured. In some charts, scale titles may be necessary to clarify what is being measured, especially in charts with multiple value scales. The following example shows a chart with scale titles:

You add scale titles to charts in the Chart Properties for that chart.

To add scale titles to a chart,

  1. Edit the chart you want, then click Chart Properties.

  2. (Optional) If you want to add titles to the category scale, click Category Scale.

  3. (Optional) If you want to add titles to the value scale, click Value Scale. If the chart contains more than one value scale, choose the value scale that corresponds to the element you want to clarify using titles (for example, Value Scale (Bar) in a grouped bar with line chart).

  4. Enter the desired title in the Title field.

  5. Click Apply.
