Is it possible to add more y-axis labels when making a graph in Illustrator?


Question

I'm trying to use Illustrator to recreate a line graph I was given. The problem I'm having is that when I use the graph tool in Illustrator, I can't seem to find any option for increasing the number of divisions on the Y-axis.

This is the original: Line Graph with several Y-labels

And this is what I have so far in Illustrator (I haven't ungrouped it to start the actual design yet): Line graph with too few Y-labels

What I want to do is increase the number of labels on the Y-axis so that they're more similar to the original. I know I can ungroup and manually add the labels, but I'd much rather it be done procedurally to minimize human error.

Alt/Option click on the graph and select Type (or select the graph, then go Object → Graph → Type).

When this window opens, select the drag down menu for graph options and choose Value axis.

You can then change the range of the values and the number of divisions.
