Bubble chart: label for the bubble size?


Turn on data labels (to show X or Y) then right click on the data label to "Format Data Labels..." Label options then appear that allow you to change what the label contains (i.e. change it to show bubble size)

    I made a bubble chart in Excel but can't figure out how you show the user what the size of the bubble means!

    The Y and X axes have labels but what about the size of the bubbles?

    Update: as of now, it seems the answer is "you cannot", but if anyone thinks it is possible, please let me know how.
