When you create a bar chart with the ChartWizard, the category labels are arranged from bottom (the first label) to top (the last label) instead of from top to bottom as expected. This order of arrangement occurs because labels are plotted from the zero reference point (usually the lower-left corner of the chart).
To place the first label on the top of the chart, use the following appropriate steps to flip the chart from top to bottom:
Microsoft Excel 97
Microsoft Excel 5.0 and 7.0
To retain the x-axis labels at the bottom of the chart in the above example, click the Value (Y) Axis Crosses At Maximum Category check box.
