Line chart scale problem

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Hi experts

I have this funny thing I can't solve. On the X-Axis the line chart is showing dates as scale. But look(file test.jpg) what it does with some of the dates, it, does not write the last number?
I have tried to make the chart smaller and the text smaller, but it still makes the same error?

I have never used charts in access but I know that in excel the information on your x axis would be in labels.  It that's true for you here, simply make the labels wider and turn off the AutoSize property (if it exists in your version......it's been a while since I've done anything in access so forgive me if I don't sound like I know what i'm talking about.)  HA

Regardless of my rambling,

I hope this  helps.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Sorry dds110, I can't change the size of the labels. But I gave it another format and now it works. Sorry for troubeling you and any one that have used time on this question.

No problem, but since you've figured it out, make sure you close this question with one of the community moderators.


How do you close it?

It's been a while since I've had to close one and it seems the rules have changed a bit.  I'm not trying to be a jerk, but, allow me to point you to the help page so that I don't give you the wrong answer.

Click the help link up top (or just click here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp).  Click "Asking Questions" in the panel on the left side of the screen.  Click "How do I close a question" in the list that appears.  You have several options to close the question.

Again, I'm not trying to be a jerk.  I'd rather you go through the trouble than to take my advice on something I'm obviously not an expert in.
