Please refer to the attached figure. If i keep the XaxisTicklabels as 1,2,3 and so on, it can be exported to PPT or figure with the help of h = copyUIAxes(app.UIAxes,axh).
But if the XaxisTickLabels are as in attached image, it displays the following error:
"Value must be a vector of type single or double whose values increase"
How to proceed with this?

I see... I won't be able to troubleshoot this without running it. Could you attach the app and instructions how to recreate the error?
Update: Before you do that, I noticed in your error message,
Error in copyUIAxes (line 148)
however, the current version of copyUIAxes() shows that line of code on line 153, not 148. So, either something was altered in your file or you're not using the most recent version of copyUIAxes. So, first download the updated version and if the error continues, provide the new copy-pasted error message and attach the app.

Update, with some guessing work (that was necessary since I wasn't provided an example), I've been able to recreate the problem and am working on a solution.
The problem is that your historgram data are categorical the categorical properties aren't copied to the new axes.
I'll update you when a solution is ready.

@Rohit Deshmukh, please download and start using the new version of copyUIAxes() (verson 1.2.0, as of 19-Mar, 2020).
I've updated it to work with categorical histograms. Please let me know if you have any further problems.
