How to sort a chart horizontally by a field from greatest to least?

The search below gives me the following data:

(ns=stats msg=email_unsub_clicks) OR (ns=email msg=fbl OR msg=send OR msg=click) | eval t=tid%100  | eval v=version%100 |  eval a=coalesce(t,v) | chart count by msg, a

msg                | 1  | 12 | 19 | 2  | 3  | 49 | 56 | 74 | 8   | 9   |OTHER |
+------------------+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-----+-----+------+
click              | 54 | 34 | 87 |208 | 77 | 67 |504 |372 | 962 | 197 |  208 |
email_unsub_clicks | 5  | 4  | 6  | 1  | 0  | 5  | 7  | 1  | 28  | 77  |  15  |
fbl                | 0  | 0  | 0  | 0  | 0  | 0  | 1  | 0  | 1   | 0   |  3   |
send               |1807|1007|1939|1264|712 |1244|9632|1748|14578|33175| 992  |

Is it possible to sort the bottom row, sends, from greatest to least?


Update:

So, the below is giving me the data vertically, but when I add the second transpose it does some weird stuff and removes most of the data

(ns=stats msg=email_unsub_clicks) OR (ns=email msg=fbl OR msg=send OR msg=click) | eval t=tid%100  | eval v=version%100 |  eval a=coalesce(t,v) | chart count by msg, a limit=7 | transpose | sort -"row 4"

+------------+-------+--------------------+-------+-------+
|     column | row 1 |       row 2        | row 3 | row 4 |
+------------+-------+--------------------+-------+-------+
|     msg    | click | email_unsub_clicks | fbl   | send  |
|     8      | 1029  | 26                 | 1     | 12104 |
|     1      | 96    | 11                 | 1     | 1789  |
|     74     | 417   | 2                  | 0     | 1746  |

|     12     | 27    | 1                  | 0     | 928   |
|     19     | 79    | 2                  | 0     | 756   |
|     3      | 86    | 0                  | 0     | 623   |
+------------+-------+--------------------+-------+-------+


(ns=stats msg=email_unsub_clicks) OR (ns=email msg=fbl OR msg=send OR msg=click) | eval t=tid%100  | eval v=version%100 |  eval a=coalesce(t,v) | chart count by msg, a limit=7 | transpose | sort -"row 4" | transpose

I don't have easy data around to try it with well enough to say it WILL work, but could you play with ... | transpose | sort -send | transpose | ... ?

You'll probably have to rewrite the above a bit. 🙂

Hello! Thanks for the response. I updated my question. For some reason the second transpose is giving me a weird return. Any thoughts?
