change chart primary horizontal axis label or name

Discussion in 'Excel Charting' started by peter wynkoop, Apr 11, 2013.

  1. trying to change the display of a simple chart that shows data recorde
    each year. i want to change the "1, 2, ...10" labels or names on th
    primary horizontal axis for the year, but haven't figured that out.
    when i introduced the year with the data, the year became plotted a
    data, which distorted the meaningful data.
    any advice would be helpful

    Have you tried xy scatter chart. This should give you dates along the x axis. You can then change the type of graph if it isn't what you want.
