Hi John, the cheapest solution is simply to rotate the picture: Rotate[Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}], Pi/2] However, that is probably not good enough as the labels face the wrong way. A better way is to use ParametricPlot: ParametricPlot[{Sin[x], x}, {x, 0, 10}] hope this helps, Daniel John.Finnigan at csiro.au wrote: > When using Plot to plot F[x] as a function of x, Mathematica automatically = > assigns the independent variable x to the horizontal axis and the dependent= > variable F[x] to the horizontal.
