Series.DataLabels method (PowerPoint)
expression A variable that represents a 'Series' object.
|Index||Optional||Variant||The number of the data label.|
An object that represents either a single data label (a DataLabel object) or a collection of all the data labels for the series (a DataLabels collection).
If the series has the Show Value option turned on for the data labels, the returned collection can contain up to one label for each point. Data labels can be turned on or off for individual points in the series.
If the series is on an area chart and has the Show Label option turned on for the data labels, the returned collection contains only a single label, which is the label for the area series.
Although the following code applies to Microsoft Word, you can readily modify it to apply to PowerPoint.
The following example sets the data labels for series one for the first chart in the active document to show their key, assuming that their values are visible when the example runs.
With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) If .HasChart Then With .Chart.SeriesCollection(1) .HasDataLabels = True With .DataLabels .ShowLegendKey = True .Type = xlValue End With End With End If End With
