As the title says: How does one add an axis label in Microsoft Office Excel 2010?


With the chart selected the ribbon changes with 'Chart Tools' highlighted select the Layout tab and it's in the 'labels' group.


Chart Tools > Layout > Labels > Axis Titles >

Primary Horizontal Axis Title > Title Below Axis


Primary Vertical Axis Title > Vertical Title

Where the title axis options are in Excel

  • not sure, should be similar, it used to live in the properties dialog of the chart prior to the ribbon over-haul, don't have a mac handy with office 08 on it to check. – Nick Josevski Sep 12 '11 at 7:17
