I have a bar graph that has text labels running down the y axis (down vertically). To get the text labels in the order I require on the Y axis I have had to do the following:
Format Axis > Axis Option > Ticked "Categories in reverse order"

By doing this I have the label flowing down the page in the correct order however I now have my X axis sitting horizontally across the top of the chart now instead of the bottom of the chart

how do I return it back to the bottom of the chart without changing the order of the labels on the y axis
