SSRS column chart has very skinny columns

Hi All

SSRS 2012, I have a column chart with a single series that looks decent in the designer. ssrs-designer.jpgBUT when I Run... and view the chart, the columns are very skinny.  I'd like the columns to appear just like the designer, where the width goes right up to the next value. ssrs-preview.jpg
Both the x/y axis are SQL Server int
Horizontal Axis > Properties >Axis Options > Interval Type=Number, Interval = 1
Series > Custom Attributes > Point Width = 1, and manipulating [Min|Max\]PixelPointWidth has no effect.

Comments with blind links will be mocked with child-like glee.

Thanks.

PointWidth should be the right property. If you go over 1 they should overlap - try 1.1 and see what happens.

Nope.  I see the change in the Design tab when I edit the PointWidth property, but Preview / Run still shows the skinny columns.

BackgroundPatternType, BorderColor, BorderStyle, BorderWidth (up to 3pt), effected Design, not Preview.

Finally figured it out.  DrawSideBySide = False (??), HistogramSegmentIntervalNumber=21 (the number of rows I have in my dataset), Max|MinPixelPointWidth=0, PointWidth=1, ZPixelPointWidth=25, SHowColumnAs=Histogram.
