Richer Data Labels in MS Excel
Data labels can be both elegant and helpful. You may add freeform text and formatting to your data labels as well as rich, resizable text from data points or any other text to make them appear in almost any shape. Even when you transition to a different type of chart, the data labels remain in place. In addition, you may link them to their corresponding data points using Leader Lines on any chart, not simply pie charts as was the case in prior Excel versions.
