DataLabel Object (Word)

Represents the data label on a chart point or trendline.

Version Added: Word 2007

On a series, the DataLabel object is a member of the DataLabels collection. The DataLabels collection contains a DataLabel object for each point. For a series without definable points (such as an area series), the DataLabels collection contains a single DataLabel object.

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 
 .Chart.SeriesCollection(1).DataLabels(5).NumberFormat = "0.000" 
 End If 
End With 

Use the Point.DataLabel property to return the DataLabel object for a single point. The following example turns on the data label for the second point in the first series of the first chart in the active document and sets the data label text to "Saturday."

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) 
 If .HasChart Then 
 With .Chart.SeriesCollection(1).Points(2) 
 .HasDataLabel = True 
 .DataLabel.Text = "Saturday" 
 End With 
 End If 
End With 

On a trendline, the Trendline.DataLabel property returns the text shown with the trendline. This can be the equation, the R-squared value, or both (if both are showing). The following example sets the trendline text for the first trendline in the first series of the first chart in the active document to show only the equation.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) 
 If .HasChart Then 
 With .Chart.SeriesCollection(1).Trendlines(1) 
 .DisplayRSquared = False 
 .DisplayEquation = True 
 End With 
 End If 
End With
