Displaying additional series information
By now, you may have noticed the Tooltip option on the Chart—Data page of the chart editor. The Tooltip option is selected by default, as shown in Figure 8-58. A tooltip displays the value series value when a user hovers the mouse pointer over a bar in a bar chart, a sector in a pie chart, or a data-point marker in a line chart. Figure 8-59 shows a tooltip displaying 40,000 when the user hovers the mouse pointer over a bar in a bar chart.
You can disable the tooltip by deselecting the Tooltip option. You also can display a different tooltip value. For the bar chart in Figure 8-59, instead of displaying the sales value, you can display the region or the quarter.
To display a different tooltip value, select a different column from the drop-down list, as shown in Figure 8-60.
