Add Text to Point on Control Chart

In some cases, you may want to add a text box to a point to provide further explanation about your data. To add a text box to a point:

  1. Click on the point. Note: The first time you click on the point, Excel will select the whole line. Click on the point a second time to get just the point. If you have done this correctly, Excel will highlight your point and the point before it.
