I have this bar. But I would like the data in descending order.
How can I do? Help me!
This is "my" script
data100 = readtable(filename100,'TextType','string');
% taking first 10 words.
data100 = data100 (1:10,:);
data100.Word = categorical (data100.Word);
%figure with italian words
bar(data100.Word, data100.Count);
ylabel("Class Distribution");

Because your data is categorical, it is getting plotted in alphabetical order by default. You can change the order using reordercats (see this answer).
You can maybe do this programmatically doing something like this (untested):
[~,idx] = sort(data100.Count,'descend');
C = categories(data100.Word);
data100.Word = reordercats(data100.Word,C(idx));
