Bar chart display
I am using a bar chart with 2 data fields to display data on my map. In the legend, I have my 2 data fields displayed, and there is a random number (not sure if it is a mean or median of one of my data columns) which is also displayed in the legend, and I cannot remove it. I'd like to remove this random number from the legend.
Can anyone help? Picture is attached. The "4.4" should not be there.
Mapping Center Answer:
Since you do not want to display the number next to the bar, you should probably also eliminate the bar from your legend -- otherwise people will wonder what it is and it won't have a label to describe it. So here is how you can do that…
…after you have inserted the legend, right click it to see its properties. Then on the Items tab, in the Legend Items right pane at the top right, right click they legend item used to make this legend, click Properties and click the General tab. At the bottom is a drop down arrow next to "Only show classes from this heading". You will probably see three options: "All" and two "all other values". The first "all other values" relates to the legend patches and their labels (% illness in spring and autumn, for your map), and the second "all other values" relates to the example bar chart and its label (4.4 on your map.) Click the second and click OK to accept all the changes.
This should take care of the problem for you!
