    I want to make an x-y scatter chart with named labels on each point.

    My data table looks like:
    Person Speed Quality
    Sue: 4, 7
    Joe: 3, 9
    Sam: 7, 3
    Jane: 5, 5

    I want a chart with Speed on the X axis, Quality on the Y axis, a mark at each x-y point, and a data label of the name beside the point.

    My actual data has 14+ items whith x-y values which will change as I update the data. If I manually label the data points, I have to manually move the labels each time the data changes.

    The only solution I have found is to make 14 separate series with one x-y point each. This method is tedious.

    Take a look at Rob Bovey's XY Scatter Labeler (item 20) at http://www.xl-logic.com/pages/charts.html.
