Scatter Plot Legend and Data Labels
« on: 16 Apr 2018 02:53:00 pm »

I am using Cognos Report Studio in Cognos 10. I have a scatter plot with roughly 50 data points that must output to PDF. Due to the number of data points the user is unable to distinguish between the points in the legend (because the colors are too close and repeat). I also cannot add data labels because the names are too long and the points are too close together.

Is there a way to create a numbered legend where the legend identifies each data point with a number and the full name and then the data points are labeled with just the number? Or perhaps there is a way to replace the data point markers themselves with numbers? Open to other solutions as well, those are just ideas.
