That cannot be done.  However, if instead of showing the data table you instead show data labels at
each point in the chart, this code will remove all labels except those for the last point in each series.



Sub FixPoints()
   
    Dim cht As ChartObject
    Dim ser As Series
    Dim Counter As Long
   
    Set cht = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1)
   
    For Each ser In cht.Chart.SeriesCollection
        For Counter = 1 To ser.Points.Count
            If Counter = ser.Points.Count Then Exit For
            ser.Points(Counter).HasDataLabel = False
        Next
    Next
   
End Sub

i can not put labels for the ending point in the series because it over laps with the other ending points in other series. is there any other way of doing this? do you think maybe a pivot table?

tomasdlv,

It would be useful to see some sample data.  EE now allows you to directly upload
files to your question.

Please be advised that once you upload a file, it can be publicly accessed, and that it
may not be possible to fully and permanently delete it.  Therefore, be very careful about
posting proprietary, confidential, or other sensitive information.  If necessary, use "fake"
and/or obfuscated data in your sample.

Regards,

Patrick

the data changes all the time...i pass this data thru a macro that creates a chart from it...depending on the client the data will always be different...do you still want a sample?

tomasdlv,

That seems like an awful lot of data to show in a chart data table...

so the final product should be a line chart based on the data attached and a smaller data table on the side with just the final data point in the series.

patrick, the data i provided will be used in the construction of the line chart...my mission is then to create a data table on the side of the line chart just giving the end values....for example the 9/30/08 in the data attached.

OK, I thought you meant you were using the data table option with the chart.  Are you savvy enough
to just grab the ending data and stick it in the appropriate cells near the chart?
