Hi, attached is a screenshot of the data and chart I am working on. This sheet is called 'Road Model'
Excel Chart ScreenshotI am trying to get the value 2.675 into the Series X values.
The circled label represents the condition and I am using a scatter point to position it. (though I have made it invisible as  I just want the label).

What I would like to do is have a formula in the series X values textbox to create 2.675 value. I do not want an extra column in the data if I can help it. Something like the following:
='Road Model'!$F$31 + (('Road Model'!$G$31 - 'Road Model'!$F$31)/2)

I am going to be doing this programmatically, but if someone knows a manual way then I would be able to figure it out.

Kind regards Hank

Are you able to provide a copy the spreadsheet?

Also you just want a label to show up and nothing else on the actual chart?

Hi Dem,

just attached a copy.

I would like to place a label centered above each line segment.

To do this so far I have created a series containing one point. And used the Series Name to hold the value of the "Condition", which is the label text I want to display.

So to answer your 2nd question, if you mean one of my label series being the only object being displayed yes, I don't want the series point to display.

The nice thing about this, if it works, will be if any of the lengths change, the lines and labels will move accordingly.

If you right click the chart and go into the Select Data you will see what I mean.

Regards Hank
