Format Axis



Is there any way to edit or add line breaks to my y-axis? The screenshot displays how it looks like now, but I would like the numbers and words to be on separate lines.

For example, rather than "7104 NXP Amp..." I'd like it to look like


NXP Amp..."


Thank you

So, one trick is to use a matrix and use Data Bars for your bars. Then you can achieve the effect that you want. Otherwise, the Y-Axis formatting leaves a little to be desired compared to X-Axis formatting that allows you to get that effect.
