1) How can you move data labels easily and quickly? A lot of times the data labels overlap, especially when numbers are larger. Only thing I've seen in forums is to write some script in the expression? So you have to go in and write that for every expression...? What if the movement of these labels doesn't solve the problems and they just run into other labels?
I feel like you should be able to drag the labels to whatever you want if this is a visualization tool so the user can place labels where he wants. Thanks for any help, it is much appreciated.
2) Can you have different number formats for the y - axis and data labels? every time I change one they both change together. Say the Y Axis is in Millions, so you have 1, 2, 3 etc..... but on the data labels you want to know the true value like 1,742,543. Is there a way to make this happen? Thank you.
That seems really strange that you can't move data labels around. Isn't it common to have multiple 'lines' in line charts and Bar/Line combo charts where there are multiple data points (for example 12 month, 2 expressions is 24 labels) and they frequently overlap. My managers don't believe that you can't move data labels around so I'm trying to find a way. Is there no known way out there like excel where it is very easy to drag the labels or set some sort of function to move them? If not, is Qlikview working on this because I would assume this is a major problem for most Qlik users.
If there is no way to do this, please let me know. Thanks.
Thanks for the help, and I've tried playing around with those tools. Bar charts is easier to get around by number formatting, but line charts you can't move the data labels around like you can in bar charts.
This is my problem. Is there no way to shift data label above and below the line so they don't overlap?
