    Column A consists of names like AA, BB, CC.
    Column B consist of values like 2.2, 3.4, 3.6
    Column C also consist of values like .7, .6, .3

    I've no problem with making an ordinary xy plott. BUT, instead of the traditional square markerstyle, I would like the name of xy value. (e.g AA for the 2.2 and .7 plott)

    I though that [Chart, Chart Options, Data Labels] functions could solve my problem, but it didn't.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for your reply.

    But your answer did not solve my problem though; the chart displayed the 2.2 value instead of the name AA.

    There is one way around; I can edit the label manually.
