Re: X-Axis Date Labels

Thanks Frank for the reply. Doing what you suggest gives me the labels I

want, however that means I have to start the graph at the begining of the

month for this to work which, creates a sort of dead space on the left of

the graph. For instance if I want to plot last 3 months from today (26 Oct

2000 to 26 Jan 2001) I have to start x-axis from 1 Oct 2000.

ChartFX1.Axis(AXIS_X).Min = CDate("01-10-2000")

I need the x-axis to start from 26 Oct but the first label to be on 1 Nov.

So ideally the FirstLabel property should take a CDate value when x-axis is


ChartFX1.Axis(AXIS_X).FirstLabel = CDate("01-11-2000")

If you know of any workarounds please let me know.

Also I found that if I tried to format the labels they moved!

ChartFX1.Axis(AXIS_X).Format = "Xdd/MMM"

gave me labels on 1 Oct, 31 Nov, 30 Dec, 1 Jan. So instead of using the

Format property I had to use the GetAxisLabel event to do this.
