It would be helpful if you actually posted an example set of data points and your plot statement so responders could work from that as a starting point. David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Joshua Feinberg [mailto:jfei05 at esc.cam.ac.uk] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Dear All, I am plotting data points with y-values between -1.5x10^-5 and 5x10^-6. Mathematica labels the lowermost y-axis tick as "-0.000015" and the uppermost y-axis tick at "5 x 10^-5". Is there any way to ask Mathematica to label all of the y-axis ticks using only scientific notation (rather than a mixture of scientific notation and decimal form)? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Joshua Feinberg
