If you want to change the chart title, you need to manually change it by typing the text in the box. Since the chart title is static, you would have to change it again and again whenever your data is refreshed/updated. Here is how you can make it dynamic (i.e., make it refer to a cell in the workbook): Click on the Chart Title box. On the backstage screen, click “Options” in the list of items on the left. The General screen displays by default. On the right side, in the Personalize your copy of Microsoft Office section, select an option from the “Office Background” drop-down list. If you don’t want a background image on the title bar, select “No Background”.

Question: In Microsoft Excel 2011 for Mac, my Excel spreadsheet has numbers for both rows and columns. How do I change the column headings back to letters such as A, B, C, D?
Answer: Traditionally, column headings are represented by letters such as A, B, C, D. If your spreadsheet shows the columns as numbers, you can change the headings back to letters with a few easy steps.
Hide hide elements at different window sizes of one. In the example below, the column headings are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 instead of the traditional A, B, C, D values that you normally see in Excel. When the column headings are numeric values, R1C1 reference style is being displayed in the spreadsheet.
To change the column headings to letters, select Preferences.. under the Excel menu.
When the Excel Preferences window appears, click on the General option under Authoring.
When the General window appears, uncheck the option called 'Use R1C1 reference style' and click on the OK button.
Now when you return to your spreadsheet, the column headings should be letters (A, B, C, D) instead of numbers (1, 2, 3, 4).
