Can we reverse the dimension(y-axis) scale in parallel coordinate plot?

Hi, I've a parallel coordinate plot where in one dimension(Y-axis) I want to reverse the scale. Where "0" value should be in top & "MAX" value should be in bottom. In parallel coordinate plot by default the MAX value is coming on top & MIN is coming on bottom. I want to reverse that in one of a dimension.

If you see the above image, in one of the dimensions, "700" is top & "0" is at the bottom. This I need in reverse order. If this is possible in Spotfire?

New to Spotfire. Need some help.

Not stating that this is the best/only way to do it, but while the Parallell Coordinate Chart does not have the reverse axis option, it it available for some other Visualization types, such as Line Charts which can produce visualizations that look similar to the Parallel Coordinate Chart, so consider if you could use that instead.

The Parallel Coordinate Chart plots data by row, while the Line Chart uses columns, so you could e.g. use an Unpivot transformation (see https://docs.tibco.com/pub/sfire-analyst/latest/doc/html/en-US/TIB_sfire-analyst_UsersGuide/index.htm#t=data%2Fdata_unpivoting_data.htm&rhsearch=unpivot&rhhlterm=unpivot&rhsyns=%20) to get your data into a suitable format for the Line Chart
