    Red face 3D maps excel 2016 add data labels

    Hi guys

    I was just wondering if anyone could help with a small issue with Excel 2016 3D maps

    I have just been upgraded from Excel 2010 to 2016 (still three years behind i know) i have been looking at 3D maps and was thinking about doing some analysis on demographics using post codes. I have got the hang of it to a degree but wondered if there is a way i can add data label (totals) to the top of my bars on the 3D map. The bars obviously display by height how many postcodes there are in that particular area that meet my criteria, some are tall and some short, to make the map a little easier to understand by the end user i think it might be useful to add a data label (in the form of a total number) on the top of each column.

    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Also is the map exportable in anyway? would it just be a case of 'snipping' it out?

    Many thanks for any help in advance

    Simon

    I don't think there are data labels equivalent to that in a standard chart.

    The bars do have a detailed tool tip but that required the map to be interactive and not a snapped picture.

    You could add annotation to each point. Select a stack and right click to Add annotation.
    Cheers

    Thanks for your reply Andy.

    I have added a legend to the map and as all the columns are different colours it gives some indication as to the totals for each column.
