I also show you how you can conditionally format the data labels in Excel graphs to show a different color if the values are positive to when the values are negative.

The technique in the video shows a variance column chart but it works in the same way for a bar chart.

This technique works for Excel 2010, Excel 2013 and Excel 2016. For Excel 2007 and below, you need to use a different technique. You will need to create two additional series, one for positive number and another for negative numbers and format each series accordingly - and also overlap these by 100%.
