    In B1 put

    =INDIRECT("A"&11-ROW())

    and formula-drag that to B10

    To formula-drag, select B1 and click on the small + in the bottom right corner of the selection, drag to B10

    Pick or add an empty column to use as a helper column. Using the same rows as
    your data to be sorted, number them from 10 to 1.

    Select the data to be sorted including your helper column. Be careful about
    other data on the sheet. If you have data in other columns, it all needs to
    be sorted together to keep your data intact.

    On the menus select >Data>Sort> Select you helper column, xlAscending and no
    header row. Click sort. Done. Get rid of the helper column/numbers.

    One Way:

    If the numbers are in the range A1:A10 then in B1 place the formula:

    =INDEX($A$1:$A$10,-ROW(A1)+ROW($A$1)+COUNTA($A$1:$A$10),1)

    and copy down to B10.

    Hope this helps

    If you want to make the changes in place with a macro, you would have to
    select the cells you want to reverse vertically in a column then run
