Custom Legend in SSRS Charts

custom legend


While designing charts, when you select a Data field and a column under category then the name of the data field will be shown as LEGEND which, sometimes, doesn’t look good as you can see below.

In the above report, I selected Sales Amount field under Data Fields and hence Legend is showing as SALES AMOUNT and if you wish to change the default Legend Name to a Custom one then follow the steps given below.

  • Right click on the Data Field and select Series Properties option.

  • Select Legend Page and provide the Custom Legend name you wish to provide. In this example I am giving “Sales” as the Legend. you can also make it dynamic by using Fx option available.

  • Select OK and Preview the report. You can see the Custom Legend set.

This is it guys .. Happie Coding !!
