- As you work with charts, most of the time…you don't worry too much about the axes…as we see them being displayed down the…left-hand side, vertically, that's the Y-axis,…the vertical axis, or across the bottom,…the horizontal axis, sometimes called the X-axis.…As we look at this chart here that's depicting…the data to the left as I click the chart,…you can see the data being represented.…Nothing too unusual here.…There are times when you want to…make changes to those axis values up and down the…left-hand side most likely, the vertical axis here.…
One option could be here, we just want a…little bit more space above the columns.…Simply double-click here.…That activates the format axis dialogue box to the right.…We're not always at the right position we need…to be here, but we are here, Axis Options.…We might want to change the maximum…there, instead of 400 to be 500.…We can either press enter or click the panel above it.…The change has occurred.…That may or may not have been to…your liking, but it's an option.…Of course, you want to explore sometimes.…
