DataLabels Object (PowerPoint)

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

Version Added: PowerPoint 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.

Note Note

Although the following code applies to Microsoft Word, you can readily modify it to apply to PowerPoint.

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


Note Note

Although the following code applies to Microsoft Word, you can readily modify it to apply to PowerPoint.

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
