Incorrect formatting on Bar Chart for single user

I have a bar chart that tracks Spending per Year. With the exception of 1 user, everyone sees the labels correctly with Year being in years, and Spending in a dollar amount.

The 1 user in question, sees Year as a SAS date, and Spending in exponential notation.

Any ideas on what's causing the issue for the 1 user, and how to correct?

Chris,

I created the chart in EG4.2 using the bar chart tool. I then use the export as a step in the project to export it to HTML, and then it is accessed over the internal network as a standard web page.

I hope this correctly answers your questions.

Thanks

Bill,

Your response to Scott makes it look like the user in question is not using EGuide to view the graph. If that is correct, then there is a chance that it is that they do not have the correct pieces of ActiveX or Java script loaded to properly view SAS output. You could have the user load the proper drivers,

or you could produce a static graphic by changing the type of graph produced.
