     I have ATTEMPTED to make an array of vertical text labels for the horizontal axis of a graph. It has variable gap sizes, it can be shifted sideways and it can have up to 26 labels. Sincere thanks to Rob for fixing up the overflow error when increasing the gap size for small numbers of labels. Yipee, Hooray. Big smile!

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

This will fix your bug -

Private Sub vert_text()
Dim i As Long
Dim j As Long
Dim InitLblGapVertAxis As Integer
Dim XLblGap As Integer
Dim sText() As String
Dim lngSUM As Long
InitLblGapVertAxis = 20 - Label1(0).Width / 2
For j = 0 To 25
Label1(j).Top = Line_HorizAxis.Y1
Label1(j).Caption = ""
For i = 1 To Len(txt_Name(j).Text)
Label1(j).Caption = Label1(j).Caption & Mid$(txt_Name(j).Text, i, 1) & vbCrLf
lngSUM = InitLblGapVertAxis + HScrollStartingXLabelPosition.Value + Line_VertAxis.X1 + HScrollXLblGap.Value * j
'Label1(j).Left = InitLblGapVertAxis + HScrollStartingXLabelPosition.Value + Line_VertAxis.X1 + HScrollXLblGap.Value * j
Label1(j).Left = lngSUM
Next i
Next j
End Sub

Many thanks Rob. I was getting double vision from trying to fix the bug, while there was a huge wind storm blowing all day long (here in Melbourne, Australia).. Thanks for looking at it. Much appreciated.
