I have some simple data, its automated so its updated via a ODBC link.

My problem is I have a smiple bar graph the order in which the data arrives in is never high to low so my graph looks untidy.

Is there a way in graph settings to always have the largest numbers first following to the smallest rather than me data sorting the table?

PS using excel 2003.

No, but you could set up a second dataset that the chart works from. You could use the =LARGE() function on your data so that the largest is always in row 2, for example, and build it up with lookups.
