Apply 11 pt font size to the category axis, value axis, and the legend for the bar chart.
619Because the largest value is less than 9,000, you can reduce the maximum bound in the chart. In addition, you want to display the category labels in the same order that they are in the worksheet.

Change the maximum bounds for the value axis to 9000 and set the Major Units to 500 for the bar chart. Use the Axis Options to format the category axis so that the category labels are in reverse order in the bar chart.
