I'm charting on a numeric value which is not an amount such as count of records in certain group etc, but it always shows up with a $ sign in the chart legend. Is there a way to remove the $ from the Chart Legend Amount column? I have gone into file->options and removed currency symbol from both number and currency field types. Also tried to edit the selected item in Chart Analyzer

Or you can create a formula and put that formula above the chart title. You dont enetr anything to the title but formula replaces the title value

In Chart Analyzer try Grid -> Data Axis -> Number (sorry if that's not exact I'm going by memory).  There's an option to select the data as being 'Number', 'Percent', etc. - Make sure 'Currency' isn't selected.

ebolek -  I'm not talking about the title here, the legend itself....

Now it looks like
US   $40 40%
UK   $60 60%

I just want to get rid of the $ sign as these are not amounts...

frodoman - Did you mean chart expert? I don't see an option for number. We are on version 8 (don't ask me why). Only options I have is Amount, Percentage, None and Both. I am selecting Both.
