Hi @amitgajkal2007 ,

In Excel, you can change the category sorting of a bar chart to descending order by following these step:

1.Select the vertical axis of the bar chart.
2.Right-click and select "Axis Format".
3.Check the "Reverse Category" option.
As a result, the categories of your bar chart will be sorted in descending order instead of the default order (dcba)
