RE: radar chart & labels


Move the axis labels to the side of the plot area
1 Radar Grid
2 2 -1 0
3 1 -1 0.5
4 2 -1 1
5 1 -1 1.5
6 2 -1 2
7 1 -1 2.5
8 2 -1 3
9 1
Create a radar chart based on the range A2:A9




Use the Source data dialog to add an extra data series


Change the new data series to an xy scatter chart and then set the x values to the range C2:C8 and the y values to D2:D8.
Format the secondary y axis to have a minimum value of -3 and a maximum of +3
Format the secondary x axis to have a minimum value of -1 and a maximum of -1


Format the data points to none. Apply data labels, displaying the y value.
Change the alignment of the data labels to Left.
The horizontal lines are positive X error bars using a fixed value of 1.


Finally finish off the formatting of the error bars and the value axis of the radar chart, removing the grid lines.
