    Unhappy Shifting horizontal axis labels on a Scatter Plot

    Kind of an unusual problem I've been trying to solve for a while -- I have some data that is plotted on a scatter plot, and I would like to have the horizontal axis labels as 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000, and 3500, with minor tick marks every 100. Problem is, I need to include data from 600-3500. I would need to begin my labeling not at my minimum value, but at 1000. I have generated some sample data and will post the example sheet here. Any ideas are appreciated, note that I only need the plot output, the sheet "cleanliness" is not an issue here.

    Standard approach for labelling an axis with labels that are not in sync with built in values is to create you own with a dummy series.

    The dummy series has points where you want a value.
