expression A variable that represents a 'DataLabel' object.

The following example sets the data label separator for the first series on the first chart in the active document to a semicolon.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1)
    If .HasChart Then
        .Chart.SeriesCollection(1). _
            DataLabels.Separator = ";"
    End If
