    Excel inverted line graph, not switch row / column

    I am plotting a line graph where the X axis labels are long statements, each associated with a value in the Y axis. The usual line graph in Excel plots this with the X axis labels at the bottom, and reading is difficult in this way. I want to still have a line graph but with the X axis displayed vertically on the left and the Y axis numbers horizontally, but not in the way that switch row / column works. The attached graph (Excel line graph.png) shows how Excel normally plots this, quite normal. The second attachment is how I really want it plotted (this one was done in Highcharts) in Excel. Is there anyone that knows how to do this?

    All help appreciated

    Use switch row/column, then click on the vertical axis and check the box labeled "Values in reverse order".

    If that is not quite what you are looking for please attach your file instead of an image.

    Using this tutorial to create a "dot plot" will turn a line chart on its side: http://peltiertech.com/Excel/Charts/DotPlot.html
