I understand that I can reorder by using the value ordering dropdown menu under column properties ( as indicated in other posts and videos). However this is needlessly time consuming for 50- 100 values that are already IN the correct order in the data set. So I am just interested in keeping the data in the order in which it currently is.

Thanks so much for your help!

Jennifer

If the data are in the order you want to use for the order of the graph, then just specify the Column Property "Row Order Levels" and it will use the order the data are found in the data table as the order to use in the graphic and other platforms
