Can we create Subgraphs with Labels

Dec 22, 2009 at 4:01 PM

Is it possible to draw or get subgraphs with labelings in it???

No, that isn't possible.  The subgraph images are "schematic views," meaning they are just the bare essentials stripped of all visual properties, including labels.  That's by design.

That's if you're using NodeXL, Analysis, Subgraph Images in Excel's ribbon.  If you're talking about extracting a single subgraph out of your full graph, please see "Can I make a subgraph for just one node?" at

I'm not sure I understand the question.  If you're asking whether you can use the NodeXL, Analysis, Subgraph Images feature in Excel's ribbon to create a set of subgraph images that include labels, the answer is no.  If you're asking whether you can extract a single subgraph out of your full graph and display that subgraph with labels, the answer is yes.  See this link for instructions on how to extract a single subgraph:
