    Scatter plot with labels

    Hi,

    For a fictional manager game I am looking to track the performance (in points) of german soccer players in relation to their market value. By the end, I want to plot a trend line to analyse which players are currently under or overvalued on the market.

    Here an example with random numbers

    Player Points Market Value
    Player 1 20 500
    Player 2 70 1,200
    Player 3 100 2,800
    Player 4 140 3,900
    Player 5 200 5,100

    I figured that the scatter method might be probably the best way to identify the real value of the players. It is relatively easy to plot the "Points" on the x-axis and the "Market Value" on the y-axis. However, I am struggling to include the name of the players into the scatter dots. When I hover over the dots I want to see which player the data belongs to. Right now, I am only able to see the data for the x and y axis, and it all belongs to "Series 1". Is it possible to automatically create a new series for each player?

    In the internet, I found a lot of results where people are able to select the label through the option "Label Contains" --> "Value from Cells". In my excel version: Microsoft Excel for Mac, it is not able to select it. If anyone had an alternative for my analysis, I would very much appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance,
    Dektronary

    Right click on a chart dot and left click on "Add Data Labels" and then "Format Data Labels"

    In Label options, select option "Value from Cells" and then select Player's Range.

    sorry, did not read last bit of your post...


    There is a free add-in by Rob Bovey, called the XY Chart Labeler. The tool gives you a UI to insert and place labels.
