If you wish to have days, then you need to have days stored in the Array which will be used to plot the graph.
ie.

Dim arrayName(days, no_of_columns)

With MSChart1
        .Plot.Axis(VtChAxisIdY).ValueScale.Auto = False
        .Plot.Axis(VtChAxisIdY).ValueScale.Minimum = 0
        .Plot.Axis(VtChAxisIdY).ValueScale.Maximum = maxVal
        .ChartData = arrayName()
End With

MaxVal is the number of days, not the months

Ok, now with your your graph
In the Axis Tab of the Chart Properties, make sure that Show Scale is true and that Auto Scaling is off.

Set Divisions Per Label to 10
Set Divisions Per Tick to 10

This will increment the graph by 10 (you'll find that if you use every day the graph wil be cluttered), but you can leave it as AutoScale if you want to plot everyday.
