Hi -

I have data compared across summer, fall, winter and spring that I would like to plot according to the categories. However, the default is to put the categories in alphabetical order along the x-axis (fall, spring, summer, winter). I would like to place these in order (winter, spring, summer, fall) so it is more logical to the viewer, but I cannot find a means by which to do this. Is there a mechanism for reordering categories along the x-axis?

Thank you,

Dorian

Hi Dorian,

 

Go your column header with the seasonal names and then right click.  Click on column properties and then Value Ordering.  Go to the lower window and move the seasons into the order that you want them to be displayed.
