I am exporting to Excel a chart which has DateTime category axis. I would like to set the minimum and maximum values on the category axis. When I try to set it using

chart.PrimaryCategoryAxis.MinimumValue =

it will only let me specify a double value, not a DateTime. How can I set the min/max values on my axis?

Another related issue is that, when I try to make my category axis values sensible by using:

chart.PrimaryCategoryAxis.IsAutoMajor = true;

I get a crash (exception).

I tried to set this because sometimes I find that when I open my excel file the major unit scale has been set to days instead of auto.

Is there a workaround/fix?
