You can manually set the y-axis range by clicking edit from the y-axis label drop-down, or from the chart configuration menu.

  3. Under Min and Max, set the y-axis range by specifying start and end values.

    In this example, the original chart shows sales values by department from 0 to over $5M. We can enter a y-axis range of 2500000 to 5000000 to show only sales between $2.5M and $5M.

    The chart reorganizes itself to reflect the new y-axis range.
