Reverse column order in Excel?
November 11, 2005 5:02 PM   Subscribe

Using MS Excel 2002 (Win), my mom has managed to reverse the order of the columns at the top of the page (Z to A instead of the usual). _Not_ the actual cell entries, but the columns themselves appear in reverse order. She has no idea how/when she did it.

It's only new files that appear this way, not her old files, so I'm assuming she has somehow changed a default setting. Searching the Help options and three Excel forums has brought me nothing. Anybody?

Tools -> Options -> International -> Default Direction: Left to Right (?)

You'll probably need to restart excel after making that change.

Wow, that's cool. She should keep it right to left if you ask me. Seems like it would help with one's brain health or something. (I looked for a while but only found out how to change the column headers to numbers.) Good one yeoz!
