This topic provides the steps to specify the chart axis start value in a column chart report. Column chart types have two axes that are used to categorize and display data relationships called the Value Axis and the Category Axis. The axes are shown in the following illustration. You can format axes by using the Properties window to change values for the axis title, interval, minimum, and maximum chart axis value.

For the complete steps to create a column chart report, see Walkthrough: Using AX Enum Provider in a Column Chart Report.

To set a chart axis start value

  1. From AOT or Application Explorer, open a report for edit for which you want to set the chart axis start value. The axis value applies to auto design reports created from a dataset where the Default Layout in the Properties window is set to ColumnChart, BarChart, or LineChart.

  2. In Model Editor, expand the auto design, and then select the XYChart data region.

  3. In the Properties window, set the Category Axis Data Scale Minimum property or the Value Axis Data Scale Minimum property to specify the chart axis start value.

  4. Click Preview to preview the report.

The following table describes the properties related to axes.
