DisplayUnitCustom Property


If the value returned or set by the DisplayUnit property is xlCustom, the DisplayUnitCustom property returns or sets the value of the units displayed for the value axis in the specified chart. The value must be a number from 0 through 10E307. Read/write Double.


Using unit labels for the value axis when charting large values makes the incremental labels on the axis more readable and the data easier to track. In other words, if you label your value axis in thousands (for example), you can use smaller numeric values next to the tick marks on the axis.


This example sets the units displayed on the value axis in myChart to increments of 500.

With myChart.Axes(xlValue)
    .DisplayUnit = xlCustom
    .DisplayUnitCustom = 500
    .HasTitle = True
    .AxisTitle.Caption = "Rebate Amounts"
End With
