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

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.
