MSChart and log scale.

Is there a way to manually scale a log scale?  I tried to change the major and minor divisions as well as the beginning and end points, but the chart seems to ignore this when plotting data.

Thanks,

Bill

if you are doing this from Excel then just unclick the box and it will work ..

tried with these settings:
minimum = 1
maximum = 100000
major axis = 1000
minor axis = 10

and uncheck the boxes next to it..

it works

tell me if you have any problem with that

Sorry, pg - I am generating this chart from within VB6 and am using MSCHart to display it.

Hmm...
Look at this property:
MSChart1.Plot.Axis(VtChAxisIdY).AxisScale.LogBase = 1

(Returns/sets the logarithm base used to plot chart values on a logarithmic axis)

Sokolovsky:

I think you misunderstood the question.  I already know how to display the log scale.  What I'm having trouble with is turning autoscaling off on that axis.  For some reason it autoscales despite the fact that I turn autoscaling off and specify major and minor divisions and stuff.

Thanks for stopping by and trying to help me out!  I really appreciate the fact that people here go out of their way to try to help.

I haven't forgotten this question; I was just waiting for someone else's input.  There was no satisfactory answer, but the two of you did try; therefore, points will be split evenly for trying.

I gave slightly more points to sokolovsky because he/she was at least in the same ballpark as I was.  The grade given was "C" because there were no followups by anyone; no active discussion.
