Hey! I have tried a few times, but somehow I can not change the y-axis scale of my boxplot. At the moment it has 1 2 3 ... x 10^5 .. I would like to display the number like 100000 or 5000000 without this 1 x 10^5. Can anyone help me?Thank you!

Dear Tania,
as far as I know, there's no dynamic way to do so. But you can use
set(gca,'yticklabel',num2str(get(gca,'ytick')'))
to set it manually. When you change the range of the axis (by adding further points), you should first reset the yticklabelmode and then reset the labeling:
set(gca,'yticklabelmode','auto')
set(gca,'yticklabel',num2str(get(gca,'ytick')'))
Best regards,
Michael

Thank you.I have done that, but now my graph on both axis only goes from 0-1. How can I specify it exactly in the way I want it? Y-axis 10.000 – 50.000? Thank you!

First plot your data and then set the labeling. It should then conserve the limits.
