    On my new and latest version of Excel, Chart Tools only has two subsidiary Tabs i.e. Design & Format. There is not one for Layout.

    I just want to add a Legend below the horizontal data.

    Please advise.

      Click on your Chart>>Click on the DESIGN tab>>Click on the QUICK LAYOUT (2nd from left)>>You will find a number of layouts there to chose from.
      Layout number 5 is with the Data Table.

      or Alternatively

      Click on your Chart>>Click on the Green + sign at the Top right of your Chart>>Tick Data Tables from there.
