Default Can you make chart bars from top to bottom?

Can you put bars in that start at the top and go down? Or, can you make bars
that start at a certain point in the middle of you chart and end at a point
higher?

Hi,

Double click the Y axis and on the Scale tab of the format dialog check
Values in reverse order. This will place the 0 values at the top of the
chart and positive values will cause the column to hang down.

To start in the middle you could use a stacked column with an additional
data series. This extra series can be formatted with no border or fill to
give the impression of floating columns.

Cheers
Andy
