I recently discovered a macro that allows users to add a data label to the last value of all the series within a graph. How would I change it to focus on only a specific series? The series name would be Actual. Below is the code.

VBA Code:
Sub LastPointLabel()
  Dim mySrs As Series
  Dim iPts As Long
  Dim vYVals As Variant
  Dim vXVals As Variant

  If ActiveChart Is Nothing Then
    MsgBox "Select a chart and try again.", vbExclamation
  Else
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each mySrs In ActiveChart.SeriesCollection
      With mySrs
        vYVals = .Values
        vXVals = .XValues
        ' clear existing labels
        .HasDataLabels = False
        For iPts = .Points.Count To 1 Step -1
          If Not IsEmpty(vYVals(iPts)) And Not IsError(vYVals(iPts)) _
              And Not IsEmpty(vXVals(iPts)) And Not IsError(vXVals(iPts)) Then
            ' add label
            mySrs.Points(iPts).ApplyDataLabels _
                ShowSeriesName:=True, _
                ShowCategoryName:=False, ShowValue:=False, _
                AutoText:=True, LegendKey:=False
            Exit For
          End If
        Next
      End With
    Next
    ' legend is now unnecessary
    ActiveChart.HasLegend = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
  End If
End Sub

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry about that. I thought it was a different site entirely. I have had no luck on that specific site so I thought I would post here where questions have been answered in the past.

Sorry again

I will follow this going forward. Thanks for directing me to that specific rule.
