Lesson 26. More Ways to Enhance Charts > Displaying or Hiding Gridlines

Displaying or Hiding Gridlines

By default, horizontal gridlines appear in most Excel charts (except certain types of charts, such as pie charts). You can change to vertical gridlines only or use both a combination of horizontal and vertical. In addition, you can change the value represented by the gridline's upper and lower limits and the interval between gridlines. Also, you can display minor gridlines.
