[If Ticks is completely not working for you (ie. you're getting a BarChart::ticks message) then you should update your version from 7.0.0 to 7.0.1.] Jaebum has already shown how to get the exact same ticks as V6, but I wonder if you're really interested in getting something like one of the following: System`BarChart[Transpose[{{1, 2, 3}, {2, 3, 4}}], ChartLabels -> {{1, 2, 3}, None}] System`BarChart[Transpose[{{1, 2, 3}, {2, 3, 4}}], ChartLabels -> {Placed[{1, 2, 3}, Below], None}] with the label below each group of bars, instead of centered on the first bar in each group?
