When you say reversed, what do you mean? Horizontally flipped, or using 
a right-to-left arrangement of the letters.

If you don't have many numbers to change, you might try to use inline 

1. put your numeric text in a separate frame
2. Convert to outlines
3. You may need to horizontally flip this.
4. Copy, e.g. Ctrl-C
5. Paste (Ctrl-V) to the appropriate location in your "reversed" text.
