There are four options, or do you want other places?

I need to move to other place manually except those four locations.

There is always an alternative, make the background chart transparent and place the values in the sheet.

Thanks. Actually I cut the data label then paste to other location, but it's not a data label anymore, therefore it's not a good solution when you might change the data.

When editing the chart: Insert Data Labels, then Placement.


You also can format a single Data Label: Two clicks on a label (not a double click) to select it then right click Format Single Data Label


You can not manually move a label. It is only possible to detach a sector from the pie (same selection by two clicks).

Thanks and actually I would like to move the data label manually, since my user showed me how to move it from MS Office.
