Tip to move the Y-Axis to the right side in Google Sheets Chart. A simple tip that can make your Chart stand out from the rest.

Needless to say the importance of data visualization in reporting. So this time let’s play around with Google Sheets Chart.

As you may know, in Google Sheets, the vertical axis (y-axis) is by default placed on the left side of the chart. It’s common in other spreadsheet applications too. But if you want, you can move the Vertical Axis to Right Side in Google Sheets Chart. How?

As an example, I am creating a line chart and then I will show you how to move the Y-Axis to the right side in Google Sheets Chart.

To plot a chart I am importing some data from the Wikipedia using IMPORTHTML function in Google Sheets.

You can use this formula in cell A1 in a blank Google Sheet and that will populate the essential and proper data for your line chart.

=importhtml("https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_trade_of_India","table",3)

At present, the populated data shows the status of India’s foreign trade (export) from 1999 to 2017.

The first column contains the status year from 1999 to 2017 and the second column contains the worth of commodities in billion (USD) that in year wise.

Just select these two columns and go to Insert > Chart. Google Sheets will insert the below line chart instantly.

I am not going to much detail about chart visualization and customization as our prime concern is to learn how to move the vertical axis to the right side in Google Sheets Chart.
