Hello-

I was given a chart to work with to track impact of projects. It plots a Data Label (yellow circle with number in it) on the chart. It works great, but i want to expand it down to 100 projects. I have played with it all day and cannot figure out how to build more plot points and make the data label look the same: (one is plotted right now at 5,5)

This is what the data looks like being plotted, the one plotted above is the test in this data:

This is what the Select Data Source Looks Like:

When I click Edit on number one, this is what shows in the edit series:

What can I do to drag this down to 100, and keep the yellow bubble with number as the data format? I have tried everything, and the closest i got was a dot on the chart with a number.

as always, i appreciate any help

I've tried to recreate your setup. Here is the chart with labels and the "Capital T" Table containing my data.

The X values are in $O$3:$O$12, the Y values are in $N$3:$N$12. The series formula is
=SERIES(Sheet1!$N$2,Sheet1!$O$3:$O$12,Sheet1!$N$3:$N$12,1)

The data label range is $L$3:$L$12:

When I save and close the file, then reopen it and add a row to the Table, everything in the chart updates to include the added row of the Table. My series formula, X values, Y values, and Labels all include row 13.
=SERIES(Sheet1!$N$2,Sheet1!$O$3:$O$13,Sheet1!$N$3:$N$13,1)

You have to do it exactly like this, with the X values, Y values, and data labels using all of the data rows of the Table.
