By x-axis are you meaning the category labels along the bottom?

The x-axis labels are set in the source data screen.

Left hand side shows the Data Series and the right hand side shows the relevant detail for each series when selected.

Below the right hand pane, there is the range chooser for the x-axis labels.

If I select the scale tab

the options I have are

value (y) axis crosses at category number  (not suitable)
number of categories between tick mark labels (not suitable)
number of categories between tick marks (not suitable)

Do I have the correct dialogue ?

Can you expand on your question to explain what you are trying to achieve?

A sample file would be good but don't forget to replicate with dummy data.
