    Cool Remove white space around a Chart object

    I want to place a chart on a report. I am finding that there is alot of white space around the actual report components. I want the actual report to extend to the edges of the enclosing box. It has to fit into a predefined location on the report and take up all the space allowed. I don't seem to be able find any attribute that allows this area to be reduced. All padding settings are set to 0. I have removed the legend and title as they are not required.
    Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Peter

    This can get tricky. Report in design view, double click on the graph control, click on the graph data area, click on the corner anchor and grab and drag. Might have to change font size.

    Thanks for your help

    I've tried clicking and dragging every conceivable "draggable" point and it is still allowing excessive room for the legend and the horizontal axis title.

    Its very frustrating, I cant understand why the chart control in Access is so different from that found in excel. I have no issue doing what i require in excel.

    IMHO, charting in Access sucks like a vacuum cleaner. It will never improve as long as M$oft has a product they can sell you that does it very well. I gave up on it long ago and use Excel, pushing/pulling/linking the data from Access to Excel or vice versa.
    - "doesn't work" doesn't help. Implement changes in copies of your database.

    As I said, tricky. Yes, Access doesn't have as sophisticated graphing but I have been able to get it to serve adequately for my needs. If you want to provide db I will take a look. Follow instructions at bottom of my post. If file too large for attaching to post, can upload to fileshare site and post link. I recommend Box.com.
