Sorting rows in descending order in Spark SQL

0 votes
df.orderBy("col") & df.sort("col") sorts the rows in ascending order. Can anyone tell me how to use native dataframe in spark to sort the rows in descending order?

Import org.apache.spark.sql.DataFrame library. You can sort in descending order by the following command:

df.sort($"col".desc)
