I don't see a "Label Position" option. I *do* see an option for alignment,
which is where you set the horizontal alignment and text direction, but I
see nothing for vertical alignment. I thought that maybe the number was too
large to fit within the bar, so as a test I dummied up the data to make it a
small number so that there would be plenty of room for the number to fit
inside the bar, but it still displays above the bar.

Excel 2007

I have an bar chart that has vertically oriented data labels that are
centered on each bar of the chart. I need to reproduce that for another
chart, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how I got it to work the
first time. I know how to add the series label to the chart and to flip
the labels vertically, but the labels all appear above the bar instead of
being centered within the bar. How do I get the series labels to
automatically center within each bar?

Thanks for any insight that you can provide.
