How do I reorder the Value field in a raster? There is no up or down button in it.

I bet this is a categorical raster with just seven categories, right? (Note that the legend is ordered alphabetically, not numerically.) :-) –  whuber Oct 12 '11 at 21:19
Yes, correct. So with the numbers it will go from 1, 2, 3, 4 .... so this is how ArcMap read this way. Is there a script that will allow me to do fix the problem ? –  PROBERT Oct 13 '11 at 15:00
This legend already is sorted, given that the slope codes are of alphanumeric type. You could use numeric codes for your categories or you could manually change the order in the legend. –  whuber Feb 24 '13 at 20:13
