Number Formating

The formatting of numbers on axis uses a simple formatting scheme where you can use the following:

n - Number formatting

c - Currency formatting

p - Percentage formatting

e - Exponential formatting

For all of these, you can use the letter followed by a number to specify the decimal places used:


n3 will give you 1,123.456 where n1 will give you 1,123.5

There is also some simple custom formatting options available that work in the same way as Excel number formats.

0 (zero) to specific a digit or zero will show:


The number 123.1 when used with the format 0000 will show 0123

# (hash) to specify a digit placeholder:


The number 123.1, when used with the format #### will show 123

. (full stop) to specify the decimal placeholder

, (comma) to specify the group/thousands seperator

% (percent sign) to specify the number is a percent and it will bemultiplied by 100 and have a percent sign placed at the end

$ (dollar sign) to specify the number is currency

; (semi-colon) to specify the delimit the positive and negative formats

You can mix these up so the number 1000321.456 using the format $#,###.0# would give you $1,000,321.46
