Double click the Vertical Axis or Right click it and choose Format Axis and in there under the Axis Options, change the Minimum Bounds to 0.

Make sure you are using the XLXS format and not Compatibility Mode.  Then review this Microsoft Article and the screenshot below.

Not sure why it is not displaying a 0.  I double clicked the vertical and I see the options and I change the minimum to 0 but it doesnt save it and keeps changing it back to 10.  

any advice?

Also change Auto to Fixed in all the settings in your screen above.  And try a new worksheet to see if it is a worksheet issue.

<I was talking about to change -200.0 to 0.
OK but I do have negative numbers in another graph (different from the one posted).
I did make the change and it does say 0 but if I do have negatives then it no longer is correct.  

Knowing I have negatives, does this change something?

Negative numbers should work if Auto is disabled everywhere. Did you try a different worksheet?

If you have negative values, why would you like to show 0 on the vertical axis. If is it set to auto, it will adjust the vertical axis as per the values.

Is it just the number formatting? Maybe the formatting that you have chosen does not show zero value and the chart axis has the "Linked to Source" option ticked.

Standard currency format will show the 0, Accounting format shows 0 as "£ - ".

Thanks
