# Make the x axis of a line plot vertical

I data saved in a cell array that I wish to plot in a vertical (portrait) axis in a gui window. The data is essentially a vertically binned matrix (the sum of each row in a single column). When I plot this data in the axis, the x axis is at the bottom, meaning all the data is squished into a narrow plot. My query is, how do I make the x axis vertical and the y axis horizontal? I have tried the simple plot(y,x) command but I did not specify x and y, the data is in a cell array so this does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated

What do you mean by 'doesn't work'? You have to pull the data out of a cell array however you plot it so why is plot(y,x) and different to plot(x,y)?
You can rotate the axes through 90-degrees, but when I have done that it quickly gets confusing when giving instructions to the axes.

It would help to have some of your data and an example of the result you want. Without those, it is difficult to provide an exact solution.
One approach is to experiment with the view function to get the result you want.
Example
x = 1:10;
y = rand(1,10);
figure(1)
plot(x,y)
figure(2)
plot(x,y)
view([-90 90])
Here, figure(2) has the axes rotated.
EDIT
The correct result is:
view([90 -90])
