Chart shows incorrect x-axis format

Using Access 97, the x-axis series is a text datatype with 14 numbers (i.e. 34554334554334).  When I chart the data, the x-axis series labels are formatted in scientific notation (i.e. 3.4543E+13). I've verified that the database field and chart label object are formatted as text, but it seems to override to the unwanted scientific notation.  Please help.    Dave.

Hi,

In the query (RowSourceType property of your bounded graph), use a trick.

Add the ascii code 255 to the selected field like this :
SELECT " " & X-AXIS-FIELD [...etc...]  FROM ...
Note : it appears here as a space but type ALT 255. If you use the space, it won't work.

If this solution is acceptable, let me know.
