This blog is part of my series Making Data Tell a Story With SSRS Properties.

Property: Label – Visible

The purpose of this property is to show the values of data points in the series on a chart.

To access the property, go to the chart series properties, expand Label, and go to Visible.

Example: I have a chart that shows sales by year, with a series for each product category.

Because there are few data points on the chart, I want each value to show a label of the exact value.

I go to the Design tab, select the series on the chart, expand Label, and set Visible to True.

I want this to look more readable. I set Font Size to 8, Format to “c” (currency), and Position to Top.

The chart is much more readable now.
