How to change the location of axis?

Qi Li (1351718) | asked Jul 04 '12, 3:19 p.m.
Usually, in a bar or line chart, the x-axis is on the bottom of the chart, and y-axis is on the left. Is it possible to change x-axis to the top of the chart? Thanks in advance!

Yes. Go to the chart editor, to the "Format Chart" tab. Select Chart Area > Axis > X-Axis. Under "Origin", instead of "Min" select "Max". This will place the x axis across the top. However, note that this *doesn't* change the ordering of the Y axis... i.e. the smallest value will still be on the bottom of the Y axis and the largest value will be at the top next to the X axis line.
