data label values overlap in column chart RRS feed

  • Question

  • please see the attached image below

    The data labels are getting overlapped for the month of may (as indicated by red circle) when the data is less compared to other months, for this SSRS column chart. I do not have the alternative to change the chart type as the client needs column chart. please advise how to correct this.

  • Hi,

    I dont think you can do much except to hide the label if the value < 10 for example if you dont want to show overlapping labels. You can do this if you go to the design layout of your chart, click on the labels, then on the chart label series properties, set visible to =Fields!DELTA.Value>=10  for example.

    Another posibility is to set your vertical axis interval from Auto to 5. This will make the lower values big enough to display the label. However, it will make your chart really tall for the ones with high values like the month of Jun.
