Mysterious values appearing in Mouse-Overs


I am new to Xcelsius (I still have troubles spelling it) and I would greatly appreciate a bit of guidance.

I created a line chart, with the X-axis representing every month and year from January 2000 to the present. When graphed, the month/year category labels are horribly blurred, because there are so many of them. As a workaround, I created another set of category labels to represent January and June of each year. That works fine. However, when users mouse-over the graphed line, a mysterious value sometimes appears where the month-year should appear. These mysterious values appear only for those months that do not have X-axis labels. For instance, since I have a category label for January 2002, January 2002 and itu2019s data value appear in the mouse-over fly-out. Since February 2002 does not have a month/year value, a mysterious number appears, with the February 2002 data value. I think I know what the mysterious value is, but it is really unwanted, I didnu2019t put it there, and I canu2019t get rid of it. How do I get rid of the mysterious numbers, and keep the data values, or -- better yet -- trick the mouse-over to show the original X-axis containing all the month/years?

Thanks for your help.
