Hello,

How can I plot a histogram with my X axis values in descending order?  I've tried the "descending" command, but it looks like that's only available for scatterplots.

For context, I'm trying to plot a histogram of the grade distribution frequencies from a course.  The data is in grade points; so it's discrete.

Seems like an easy function and common request, but I can't seem to find an answer in the help file nor web searching.

Thanks! 

Best, John
