Hello everybody,
have you ever met situation when Excel columns go from right to left (column A is first from the right) but data are ingested from left to right (January is in column L, December in A). If I just copy and paste all data I have wrong order. How can I reverse order of columns? Can I change spreadsheet to get column A on the left? If I could reverse order of data (i.e. January in column A) it would also be OK for me. Thanks in advance for any help.

Options - Advanced - Display - Left to Right (select)
optionally: Options - Advanced - Display options for this worksheet - (uncheck) Show sheet right to left

Thank you very much for your answer. However it does not resolve all problems. It reverses whole spreadsheet together with columns. I need data in columns in reversed order.
I forgot in first message: I work on PC, Windows 10, Excel Office 365.

Oh so I misunderstood.
try:
  • copy row with months
  • paste transform
  • add index (1..12)
  • sort reverse index column (with two columns selected) (12..1)
  • copy vertical range of months
  • paste transform
  • remove previous data
  • move actual data to the right place
or maybe find any vba to sort selected range or use PowerQuery
