Box Plot Axes

Box plot axes appear on box plots and notched box-whisker plots. Box plot axes contain the category value for each column in the worksheet. Box plot axes are X axes for vertical box plots and Y axes for horizontal box plots. The labels are the column header labels.

 

Box plot axes are created automatically when the box plot or notched box plot is created. Box plot axes cannot be added to an existing graph.

 

An example box axis shows a set from each column. The set

names are from the column headers.
