Using unit labels for the value axis when charting large values makes the incremental labels on the axis more readable and the data easier to track. In other words, if you label your value axis in thousands (for example), you can use smaller numeric values next to the tick marks on the axis.

This example sets the units displayed on the value axis in myChart to hundreds.

With myChart.Axes(xlValue) 
 .DisplayUnit = xlHundreds 
 .HasTitle = True 
 .AxisTitle.Caption = "Rebate Amounts" 
End With
