Using unit labels when charting large values makes your tick-mark labels easier to read. For example, if you label your value axis in units of hundreds, thousands, or millions, you can use smaller numeric values at the tick marks on the axis.


The following example sets the units displayed on the value axis of the first chart in the active document to hundreds.

With ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1) 
 If .HasChart Then 
 With .Chart.Axes(xlValue) 
 .DisplayUnit = xlHundreds 
 .HasTitle = True 
 .AxisTitle.Caption = "Rebate Amounts" 
 End With 
 End If 
End With
