Axis.DisplayUnit property (Excel)

Returns or sets the unit label for the value axis. Read/write XlDisplayUnit, xlCustom, or xlNone.



expression A variable that represents an Axis object.


The unit label can be one of the XlDisplayUnit constants.

The unit label can also be one of the following constants: xlCustom or xlNone.

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.


This example sets the units displayed on the value axis on Chart1 to hundreds.

With Charts("Chart1").Axes(xlValue) 
 .DisplayUnit = xlHundreds 
 .HasTitle = True 
 .AxisTitle.Caption = "Rebate Amounts" 
End With
