I am setting up the SharePoint 2010 BI environment.

  • When I upload "PowerPivot Excel" document into SharePoint under document library, the Tooltips on chart is displayed as "Excel Chart or image".
  • I can see "Value, Category and Series" tooltips when I open with Excel and hover on the chart.
  • Using "Excel Web Access" also could not configure the tooltips that I want.

Please kindly guide me, if somebody know the solution.


Excel Services provides a subset of the features of Excel. Detailed ToolTips are not shown when viewing in the browser.

You can find a list of supported and unsupported features here:

  • Thank you for your information, Steven. Do you think it is an unsupported feature? – Lwin Jul 31 '13 at 9:37
  • I think it is just ignored by the web rendering, not so much unsupported. The tips will still be there, but only when opening the workbook in Excel. – Steven Van de Craen Jul 31 '13 at 13:06
