AutoCAD Revision Table - From bottom to top

Short question about the Vault Revision Table for AutoCAD:

 

Is there a way to change the order of how new revision will be added? So by default, new revision goes from top to the bottom, but I would like to have new revision added from bottom to top!

 

I know that the revision is a table inside a block, but maybe there is a possibilty to change the algoryhtm of how to add a new cell to the table.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

 

I haven't tried this out yet... but:

 

Look on your machine for C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2013\vaac_revblockimperial.dwg or metric if that's what you use.  Open this file in Acad and do a block edit on the block of the same name.  What should come up in block editor is the table being used for the rev block.  In the Table editor, modify the style for this table and set table direction form Down to Up as the default.  I would copy the file out somewhere first so that if it doesn't work, you can go back to a clean copy of the file.
