Hello -

I am plotting a group of data points on a MsChart line graph.  The problem I am having is that the x-axis displays the date assoicated with each data point.  When I go over a certain amount to datapoints the x-axis becomes a glob of un-readble dates.  Does anyone know how to set it to only display say every 6th date etc or do automatic scaling

Thanks,
Gigglick
