Formatting labels to fit on the x-axis
A chart that displays numerous category values sometimes cannot fit all the values on the x-axis. As discussed previously, one way to format x-axis labels so that they all appear is to reduce the font size.
Other techniques include rotating the labels, staggering the labels, and displaying the labels at set intervals. You can also use a combination of these techniques.
