    Thank you for taking the time to share your request for linking min/max values of a chart axis to the cell value! We think this suggestion has merit; however, we don’t expect to devote time to it in the near future. We will continue tracking votes and comments here, and will keep this suggestion under consideration for future development.

    Thank you again, and please keep sharing your thoughts!

    You are correct. Chart titles and axis labels can be referred to by a cell address.

    This request to allow one to enter a cell address for the Minimum and Maximum Bounds on a chart's Axis. Currently, one can select "Automatic" or manually enter a number in the Format Axis window. (VBA options are also possible). One is not allowed to enter a cell address into the Minimum or Maximum field in the Format Axis option.

    The last time MSFT responded to these multiple requests at almost five years ago. I do believe that nobody is listening to our request to link min/max values to a cell reference.

    The last response from MSFT to this request to link Min-Max axis to cells was 4 years ago. How many releases have there been in the past four years? We find it difficult to believe that your are actually evaluating this for a possible future release.

    Not having the option to refer to cell values for Chart Axis Min-Max requires us to jump through myriads of VBA macros to create a chart with the flexibility that Corel Quattro Pro had built into it 25 years ago. Why it is taking Excel so long to develop this obvious deficiency is more than mystery.

    Please make this customizable. Very time consuming at data entry to hit an arrow key after Enter to move the cursor to the cell you intend to use next
