Line and Clustered Column Chart Data Labels

I would like a way to customize the labels on charts, specifically the Line and Clustered Column Chart. The line in my chart is a custom column that displays a target value, and the label is repeated across seven categories. I am requesting the ability to display labels for each axis seperately (i.e. disable labels on secondary axis, and show labels on primary axis).

Hi - we recently added the ability to put a reference line on a column chart which might really help you! You'll find it in the Format pane for your column chart. Hope it helps! Will

Under the data label feature of the chart, select customize series. Turn it on and then select the variable in the chart to customize. 

for example I have a target line in my line and clustered chart and want to remove the data label for that field alone which is quite possible.

Hi, 

How can I separate the line from the bar?

The numbers are too close! 

I know change the secondary axis scale BUT if I do this the axis will be the same for all categories at the roller bar on the right, that I called "BD"

 

PLEASE! Anybody can help me!???

 

or It´s possible to highlight the numbers of the line???

 

Thanks!!
