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.
    select point on an excel chart
     

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