say if i have a matrix a:
a=[1 2 3;4 5 6;7 8 9;NaN NaN NaN]
i want to sort this in descending order, so i use
but the problem is, matlab puts the NaN at the top, is there a way to make it so that NaN is at the bottom? Thanks

As long as you don't have any -Inf values in a, you could always do a quick hack:
a=[1 2 3;4 5 6;7 8 9;NaN NaN NaN]
a(isnan(a)) = -Inf;
a = sort(a,1,'descend');
a(isinf(a)) = NaN

Very late to this for the original poster, but for anyone later looking how to do this....
It's in the matlab functionality.

That functionality was introduced in release R2017a. While I agree that's a good way to solve the problem now, it was not an option when the question was originally asked in 2012.

You could do something like this:
a=[1 2 3;4 5 6;7 8 9;NaN NaN NaN];
a= sort(a,1,'descend');
in = any( isnan(a),2);
a = [ a(~in,:); a(in,:)];

This will work
newA = a; % copy original matrix
isANanRow = any(isnan(a),2); % find rows that have a nan in them
% move those nan rows to the end
newA(end-nnz(isANanRow)+1:end,:) = a(isANanRow,:);
% sort nonnan rows and place at top of newA array
newA(1:nnz(~isANanRow),:) = sort(a(~isANanRow,:),1,'descend');
