Axis object (Excel)

Represents a single axis in a chart.


The Axis object is a member of the Axes collection.

Use Axes (type, group), where type is the axis type and group is the axis group, to return a single Axis object.

  • Type can be one of the following XlAxisType constants: xlCategory, xlSeriesAxis, or xlValue.

  • Group can be one of the following XlAxisGroup constants: xlPrimary or xlSecondary.

For more information, see the Axes method of the Chart object.


The following example sets the category axis title text on the chart sheet named Chart1.

With Charts("chart1").Axes(xlCategory) 
 .HasTitle = True 
 .AxisTitle.Caption = "1994" 
End With
