I have a chart with a data table attached to it. The labels on the data table are horizontal and over run each other. I can not find a way to change them to vertical or to re-size the data table? Does anyone have any help?

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

Its been my experience that data tables are notoriously "etched in stone". If I don't like what Excel presents, then I eliminate the data table and try to use textboxes with formula links to present the (portions) of data from the source. After creating a textbox, click into the box, and then type the source location as a formula in the formula bar above your chart; (eg., =Sheet1!A2). Its a workaround, and its time-consuming. But it may just enable you to achieve the effect you need.
