Changing graph data display properties

The Format Data dialog box allows you to select which fields are displayed in a graph, and change the colors assigned to each field. For example, you can display fewer fields, or display a field that is hidden by default. You can also change the font size, style, color, and orientation of the data labels, or hide them from view altogether.

To change graph data display properties:

  1. Click Format Data .
  2. Click the appropriate tab for the data display property you want to edit:
    • Data – Move available fields that you want displayed in a graph to the Selected fields list. Use the Up and Down buttons to change the order in which the fields are displayed in the graph and in the legend.


      You can also choose which available fields to display by right-clicking the graph display area and selecting Select Fields.

    • Options – Change label text orientation options.

    • Font – Change data display text font, style, size, or color of text on the x axis.

    • Data Series – Change color schemes for the graphical representation of fields and toggle the option to display them as either transparent or solid.
