Excel 2010:  Chart Time Intervals

I have a chart that consists of a vertical axis and is in 20 minute intervals (or appears to be so).  I'd like it to be in 5 minute intervals, what's the best way of configuring this to show that?  I'm assuming I'm going to click on the Vertical Axis and choose "Format Axis" then will adjust according in the "Axis Options" section?  Any guidance here is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Right now it looks like this:

0.3             <<<<<<         (I'm guessing this reflects 3 hours)

0.25           <<<<<<        (2.2 hours?)

0.2             <<<<<<<      ( 2 hours?)

0.15

0.1

0.05

You should know what the numbers represents, it´s strange 0.3 is 3 hours, but OK, it could be but then
0.25 is 2,5 hours
0.2 is 2 hours
0.15 is 1,5 hours
0.1 is 1 hour
0.05 is 0,5 hour

then it seems intervals are 0,5 hour (30 minutes)

you can also convert directly in excel that numbers to minutes and use in your axis numbers representing minutes or hours

After a little tweaking and peaking I was able to break it down as such:


Minimum:     Auto               0.0
Maximum:    Fixed              8.0    <<<< reflects 8 hour work day
Major unit:   Fixed               .25   <<<< reflects 15 minutes
Minor unit:   Fixed              0.1   <<<<<haven't a clue

I can now distinguish 15 minute increments on the vertical axis.  Granted it's not the prettiest thing but it works.
