    Labeling A Graph

    Hi,

    I have a pretty maddening issue and I'm pretty sure it's easy to figure out but I can't. I simply need to name each column, and I plan on labeling them: "column 1," "column 2," etc. I also need to name what is currently titled "Series" into "Row 1," "Row 2," etc. How do I do this?? For some reason I can't seem to find a way. Thanks to those who help!

    Assuming I understand what labels you want where, in a 3D column chart like this:

    1) Go into the "Select Data" dialog (Chart group->Design tab, I think is where it should be in 2011).
    2) Assuming the "column" labels (column1, column2, column3,...) are convenient in the spreadsheet, make sure the "horizontal category axis" range is pointing to the range containing the column labels.
    3) The "row"/series labels are the "name" field for each data series. So, select each data series, click "Edit", then make sure the "Name" field is pointing to the proper cell on the sheet (or contains the proper text).

    Thank you so much! I also had another question. Do you know if Excel lets your turn the graph rotatable by 360 degrees on an xyz axis. I plan on posting this graph on a website, and I was hoping that viewers can rotate the graph in every direction. Is that possible with excel?

    I may be overly optimistic, but I tend to think almost anything is possible with enough time, energy, skill, and ingenuity.

    From within Excel, you can bring up the "format chart area" dialog, click on "3D rotation" and change the parameters there to rotate the view of the 3D chart. Doing this from a webpage will probably depend on your and the viewer's ability to manipulate these parameters from the webpage. Since I have no experience with browser based programming, I will have to defer to those more knowledgeable in that area of expertise.
