- Microsoft Excel 97 Standard Edition
This article was previously published under Q174170
When you create a column or an area chart in a workbook in Microsoft Excel 5.0c or Excel 7.0, and then open the workbook in Excel 97, the y axis is rescaled. For example, if the y-axis scale for the chart in Excel 5.0c or Excel 7.0 uses numbers from 0 through 25, the y-axis scale for the chart uses numbers from 0 through 30 when you open the workbook in Excel 97.
Microsoft added this feature to Excel 97 to improve the appearance of charts.
To work around this behavior, double click the axis, click the Scale tab and change the Maximum or Major Unit box as necessary.
