Windows 7: Excel label alignment error

Excel label alignment error

Here I have a screenshot which should make clear what is expected to happen and what actually happens. For some reason Excel thinks that the datum in J114 corresponds to a label in A113 instead of A114 and so on. Anyone know how to get Excel back in line?

Here are a couple of screenshots which I'm pretty sure demonstrate a bug in Excel. It functions fine when I put numbers in an additional column of labels and reverts to idiocy when I remove them:

I've come to the conclusion that it isn't a bug. The labels are being moved to the first of each series of values and in order to get them to span the series, you have to create another column (containing e.g. spaces). This is a bit stupid but that's the way it is.
