    Data Labels on XY Charts (Excel 2000)

    Hi,

    I can't get data labels on my Scatterplot (XY) chart. In the data area there's not any place to add them.

    In the Options, if I select data labels it puts the X value.

    It shouldn't be this hard. Is this a shortcoming in Excel or am I missing something?

    Thanks to both of you. Why doesn't MS fix such obvious problems!?

    All stats things, esp stats charts, are a big pain.

    Have a look at this MVP Page for a free add-in to add labels to data points.
