I have a bar graph with negative y-axis values and categorical values on the x-axis. Does anyone know how I can move the categorical values to the bottom of the axis? The x-axis values on currently on the bars of the graph at the top. I need them on the bottom.

Thanks for your help!!!

  • Right-Click on any value on the y-axis
  • Select Format Axis from the pop-up menu
  • Select the Scale tab on the Format Axis dialog
  • Select both options;
    • Values in Reverse Order
    • Category X axis crosses at max value

Thank you for your reply. I want to keep the negative values so the bars point down, but I want the x-axis values on the bottom. Is there a way to do that?

Right now I have something that looks like this.......

col1 col2 col3

0
-10
-15
-20


But I want it to look like this......

0
-10
-15
-20


col1 col2 col3
