Is it possible to place the value on top of each bar in a bar chart thematic map in Mapinfo?

This is how I did it so far: I wanted to show a value per zone (the amount of trips generated in one area) with a bar: the areas which generate more trips have a larger bar. I also wanted to place the value of such bar on top, but as I couldn't find how, I placed the label at the base of the bar by choosing the following label display options:

enter image description here

This is what the thematic map looks like:

Thematic map - one bar

I would like the numbers to be on top of the bars, if it is possible, especially because for my next thematic map I will have to represent several fields at a time (origins and destinations, that is: two bars), so I will no longer be able to use labels to show the value.

  • Please decide which of MapInfo and QGIS you wish to ask about in this particular question.

In the Placement Section of the Label Display Menu change default position from Bottom(B) to Top(T).
