Include Data label for just bars, but not line

For a bar and line chart, is there a way to have data labels for just the bar - but not the line?

    In the Chart Properties, under the data label settings, you can choose if you want line and bar, line only or bar only.

  • Also... it doesn't appear I have the option to adjust the text color.... the only option is to select the fill box, which doesn't look very asthetic.

  • Thanks @MarkSnodgrass How do I adjust the text color? It only shows up as black (which doesn't show well on a dark black bar).

    Some chart types have a setting for the text color to be complimentary, but it doesn't appear that the line + bar chart type has that setting. Unfortunately, you are stuck with changing the other colors or looking into a different chart type.
