Hi all,

Using Excel M365.
How can I center the X-Axis label for irregular data? Some months have 4 weeks, some have 5 weeks.
The first series in the chart gives a visual cue for which bars in series 2 belong to each month.

I tried merging cells for each month, adding the label and choosing the column for the x-axis - but that did not help.
The label is still aligned left on the first data point for each month.

thanks,
lou

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

You can get this effect if you include a column of labels for the weeks. I've used counting numbers 1, 2, 3, etc, but you could put whatever you want into that column.
