How can I make OpenOffice charts with a non-standard origin.

I want to make charts whose X and Y values range over small intervals. That is to say, X goes from, 1900 to 2000, by 10s, and Y goes from, say 150e6.0 to 200e6.0. The charts I can make all seem to want the lower left hand corner to be at y=0, which means that the chart looks a lot like a vertical line.
Since this comes from a spreadsheet, I could make a column which has $y-min($y) to normalize it, though this seems like something I should not have to do. But then the labels are not the values but the normalized values.
Perhaps the problem is that I don't really know how to make OO charts. I'm just guessing, given the contents of the help files. But this is driving me crazy.
Tnx in advance.
