Limiting and Sorting Axis Points
You can limit the number of Xaxis or Zaxis labels to a predefined number. The Xaxis defines the category and the Zaxis defines the series. You can use this feature to display only the N highest or N lowest values for a field or calculated Y value. For example, to display the 10 highest revenue accounts, you can chart the Revenue field in descending order and limit the Xaxis to 10 data points. To limit and sort axis points
 Complete Step 1 through Step 5.
 In the Object Explorer, expand the Chart tree, and then click Chart Element.
 In the Chart Elements list, define properties of the axis label chart element, using values from the following table.


Divisions 
Defines the Xaxis or the Zaxis. Enter an integer to limit the number of Xaxis or Zaxis labels. Siebel CRM limits the number of labels it displays to the number you enter. Note the following:
 Make sure the AxisId property is equal to XAxis or ZAxis.
 Make sure the Type property is equal to AxisLabel.

Sort Specification 
Defines the Yaxis. Enter Ascending or Descending . Note the following:
 Make sure the AxisId property is equal to YAxis.
 Make sure the Type property is equal to AxisLabel.

Sorting the YAxis
You can sort the Yaxis. To sort the Yaxis
 Create a sort specification on the Yaxis.
This sort specification is independent of limiting the number of Xaxis or Zaxis divisions. A sort specification on Y orders the data points regardless of if you limit or do not limit the display to the first N points. However, you cannot set a number of Xaxis or Zaxis divisions without also setting a sort specification on Y.
Sorting on the XAxis or ZAxis
You can sort the Xaxis or Zaxis labels. To sort on the Xaxis or Zaxis
 Complete Step 1 through Step 5.
 In the Object Explorer, expand the Chart tree, and then click Chart Element.
 Set the Sort Specification of the chart element in the Xaxis or Zaxis label.
For example, if the Xaxis displays country names, then sort the names so that they are in alphabetical order, from left to right. This is different from sorting on Yaxis values from a field in a business component or function according to the field where these values are numeric.
