DataLabels Object (Word)

A collection of all the DataLabel objects for the specified series.

Version Added: Word 2007

Each DataLabel object represents a data label for a point or trendline. For a series without definable points (such as an area series), the DataLabels collection contains a single data label.

Use the DataLabels method to return the DataLabels collection. The following example sets the number format for data labels on the first series of the first chart in the active document.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) 
 If .HasChart Then 
 With Chart.SeriesCollection(1) 
 .HasDataLabels = True 
 .DataLabels.NumberFormat = "##.##" 
 End With 
 End If 
End With 

Use DataLabels(Index), where Index is the data label index number, to return a single DataLabel object. The following example sets the number format for the fifth data label in the first series of the first chart in the active document.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) 
 If .HasChart Then 
 With Chart.SeriesCollection(1).DataLabels(5) 
 .NumberFormat = "0.000" 
 End With 
 End If 
End With
