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.

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

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
