How to Create Aliases

Sometimes, the category names of the variables in the data set are not representable for reporting, so you need to create aliases to appear differently on the chart labels. This article describes how to create aliases in the data set file, which will automatically update the chart labels. 

Note* You can create aliases only for the categories of dimensions.



  1. In Chart Maker, right-click on the desired variable in the Data pane -> Rename Aliases
  2. In the Rename Aliases dialog box, under Alias, type a new name in front of each Category (Member)

Automatically update all your PowerPoint charts with the new data in 15 seconds.
