In Excel, when one has a scatter diagram, and values such as 9.81, 19.62 and 29.43 on the x-axis, how can one get Excel to display the decimal numbers on the x-axis, rather than have 9.81 be set a little before 10, 19.62 be set a little before 20 etc. ? thanks,

Try building a line chart first using just the y values.

Then select the range on the chart -- you'll get something like

=SERIES(,,Sheet1!$B$1:$B$3,1)

in the formula bar. Click between the 2 commas, then click & drag on the x values (on the worksheet).

If you *must* stick with scatter, try Rob Bovey's free Labeler add-in at http://www.appspro.com/utilities/utilities.asp

CK,

Are you saying that you have a data point in the chart with the value 9.81 and you want that 9.81 value itself to appear right on the X axis?

I have done it as "Labels"... but I have never seen it done where you can still have the X axis proportional (ie 7.5 would be three time the distance down the axis as 2.5) And with labels, you lose your curve characteristic.

I know you can move the labels left and right on the data series itself.

Now that I think of it - I guess I am of no help :(

Guess I better go get some coffee!
