Default How to show X values on the X axis

Hi all!!
Please, can you tell me how to show X values on the X axis ?
example:
X Y


1,2 20
2,4 23
4,5 15
9,1 22
When I create the graph, on X axis automatically the scale is set from 0 to 10 but the values 1,2 2,4 4,5 9,1 do not appears.
I need to have numeric values on X axis, so the values need to be at the right scaled position from 0 and not at a constant space between each ones.
How is it possible?

Thanks

you can change the Major units to 0.2 (or even 0.1) but due to the range of numbers it soon begins to look messy

Do you really need it as a line chart?

You can cheat. See attached, button and notes in the code.
Code:
Sub blah()
Sheets("Foglio1").Copy After:=Sheets(Sheets.Count)    'makes a copy of the sheet; remove when development finished.
With ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Grafico 1").Chart
  PlotTop = .PlotArea.Top
  OrigTop = .Axes(xlCategory).Top
  .Axes(xlCategory).MajorGridlines.Delete
  .Axes(xlCategory).Delete
  .PlotArea.Top = PlotTop - 10
  .FullSeriesCollection(1).ApplyDataLabels
  With .FullSeriesCollection(1).DataLabels
    .ShowCategoryName = True
    .ShowValue = False
    .Position = xlLabelPositionBelow
  End With
  For Each pt In .FullSeriesCollection(1).DataLabels
    pt.Top = OrigTop
  Next pt
End With
End Sub

I am just interested now how to apply the macro to another sheet, with much more data..... how to adapt the macro ?
Some questions:
1. how to adapt the macro to a specific data sheet ?
2. where is the instructions creating the "button" ?
3. where can I change the colour of the vertical line of the graph (currently grey)?

I have some experience of programming but in this case I cannot see any instructions easy to understand!

Thanks for your feedback

The macro works on a chart, not a sheet. Record a macro selecting the sheet and then the chart. Copy the code here and I'll show you how to tweak it.

Developer tab, Controls section, Insert dropdown: choose top left button (Form Controls, (Button, Form Control). Then click on the sheet, an Assign Macro dialogue box pops up: choose the macro from the list, Click OK.

Manually, select one of them (all will be selected), right-click and choose Format Leader lines… you can select the colour in the pane which appears on the right. Automated, you need to use the likes of one of these:
Code:
    ActiveChart.FullSeriesCollection(1).LeaderLines.Format.Line.ForeColor.RGB = vbRed
    ActiveChart.FullSeriesCollection(1).LeaderLines.Format.Line.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(23, 185, 65)
    ActiveChart.FullSeriesCollection(1).LeaderLines.Format.Line.ForeColor.RGB = 11817066
To get the values after the equals sign for a specific colour of your liking, record a macro of you changing the colour of any line, fill of a cell, font colour, preferably using the More Colours… option, then the Custom tab (where you can see the individual Red/Green/Blue values) and you should see amongst the lines of recorded code the likes of:
Code:
.Color = 10605937
.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(46, 218, 46)
Use those values.
