    fix the position of a text box in an x-y graph

    Hello,
    I have an xy-graph in which I put a dynamic text box (I selected the graph, went to Format, insert shapes and selected text box).
    It would be great when I could fix the position of the textbox (for instance the left top corner) to a fixed x-y coordinate in the graph.
    Tips are very welcome!
    Best regards, Marcel

    Rather than use a text box, I would use a "dummy" point and its data label.
    1) Enter your desired x and y coordinates in a convenient pair of cells.
    2) Add this pair of points as a new series to the XY scatter chart.
    3) Add the data label to this point/series, then edit/format the data label to display the desired text.
