I assume that is the Title of the primary Y axis.

In earlier questions you used a variable chartArea1 to add a chart area to the chart dynamically. If you're still using that, this should do the trick:
chartArea1.AxisY.TextOrientation = TextOrientation.Horizontal

Open in new window

The text will wrap as the chart object sees fit but you can influence it by including newlines for example:
chartArea1.AxisY.Title = "MTD Sales Figure" & Environment.NewLine & "&" & Environment.NewLine & "MTD Budget"

Open in new window

By the way, if you don't have a chartarea1 variable you could of course do something like:
yourchart.ChartAreas(0).AxisY.TextOrientation = TextOrientation.Horizontal

Open in new window
