Represents a single axis in a chart.

The Axis object is a member of the Axes collection.

Use Axes(type, group) where type is the axis type and group is the axis group to return a single Axis object. Type can be one of the following XlAxisType constants: xlCategory, xlSeries, or xlValue. Group can be one of the following XlAxisGroup constants: xlPrimary or xlSecondary. For more information, see the Axes method.

The following example sets the category axis title text on the chart sheet named "Chart1."

With Charts("chart1").Axes(xlCategory) 
 .HasTitle = True 
 .AxisTitle.Caption = "1994" 
End With
