Formatting chart axes
Formatting chart axes
The horizontal and vertical axes help you interpret the values
displayed in a chart. For most chart types, including line charts
and column charts, the vertical axis summarizes numerical
values such as sales or miles driven. The horizontal axis tends
to display category data, such as months for which sales data is
collected, categories of products, or exhibits at a zoo. You can
change the standard formatting of these axes to help viewers
understand your data more quickly.
