Changing Secondary axis value units

Can someone tell me how I can change the secondary axis value using different
increments than the primary axis value units, it doesn't seem to be working
correctly.
I'm using column 2 axis chart
Here are my numbers:
week 1 2 3 4 5 6
homes 275 90 230 270 149 260
price 150 275 175 165 145 100
The line for the price - which Iam plotting on my secondary axis, when I
put in my value units, goes completly off the chart. When the Y major and
minor units are the same as the X major and minor it works fine. But when I
change the Y units to increment by 5 it throws the line off the chart.

Please help I have no idea what is happening here. Can someone tell me
stepby step what I need to do? I'm new to this excel charting business
thanks

What do you have for min and max values for the secondary Y axis?

and 5 at the major units.

Are you sure the price values aren't in thousands, with a number format
that's hiding the last three zeros? In the Format Axis dialog, Scale
tab, what are the values for min and max before you try to set them?

It's the example that is in the Excel sample for a combination chart. I was
trying to recreate it. Wasn't sure how to do it
