How do I create ticks between bars

Occasionally, you may want the tick marks on a bar chart top draw between the bars, "Excel style", rather than at the data points, which is generally a better way. In this case, you can use Minor Tick marks to draw these ticks.

1. For the X axis tick marks, change Apply to to Minor ticks.

2. Set the Bottom direction to Outward.

3. Set the Length to the desired length.

4. Set the Tick intervals to 2.

5. To delete the major tick marks, just click then and press Del

Histograms and variable x spacing

If you are using histograms and want the bars to represent values within an x range, you can change the width settings of bars to match the ranges they represent

1. Create an XY bar chart using numeric values for the x-range.

2. From the Widths panel of the Graph Properties dialog box, set the Bar thickness to 100%.

3. Set the Width style to Variable.

4. Set the Bar alignment to Left.

5. The bar chart will now accurately represent both bin range and counts.
