Does anyone know how to move bar chart label position? Can you label be showing vertically rather than horizontally?

The default of my is at the bottom of the bar

Re: How to move bar chart label position

Hi bernie426,

Are you referring to the axis labels for each bar? If so, double click the X axis and you will be able to change the orientation of the labels. You might try vertical, or angled, if you are working with long category labels.

I hope this helps!

Re: How to move bar chart label position

There's no option to move the labels, but they're usually at the top of the bar (or middle for stacked bars), so I may be missing something if yours are at the bottom.

A couple ugly work-arounds.

  1. Use text annotation (in the Tools menu) and enter the text manually
  2. Put the label in a label column and add labeled markers to the graph under the top of the bar. The labels for markers ("Points" in Graph Builder) are movable.
