I have a bar graph with 3 groups of 3 columns...if that makes sense. All I want to do is to put the name of something underneath each column, but no matter what I do I only get;

1 2 3

Is there something I can do to fix this? And on a greater scale, why is there not an option to simply type in what you want to have in that spot?

Thanks Eric

The easiest way would be to create four column table

Label-for-x-axis; Data1; Data2; Data3

Highlight all four columns and all rows and select the graph. The label will show up at the x-axis and the data columns in the graph.

I hope you understand my explanation.

It isn't so easy to understand your problem. From your explanation it seems easy to do that. Can you provide a sample file? Can you make a mockup image of what you want to do?

You can add text under columns (even rotate the text to fit vertically or stacked vertically). Alternatively you can type anything anywhere by adding a text box from the Drawing toolbar.
