Reversing the Axis Order

Change the order in which values are plotted along the axis of a Cartesian graph.

The axis order can be reversed for both the horizontal axis and the vertical axis.

As an example, the vertical axis order of a Cartesian graph is reversed. The steps are similar for reversing the horizontal axis order.

  1. Select the Cartesian graph where you want to reverse the vertical axis order.
  2. On the Cartesian contextual tabs set, on the Display tab, in the Axes group, click the  Reversed order (vertical) icon.
