Columns with Monthly Data do not link

Hi, I am trying to generate a table to show my various assets with their monthly performance.

When I imported the excel into powerbi, the monthly columns do not link i.e. The x-axis does not show the chronological months e.g. Jan-> Feb-> Mar (the columns on the left are independent of each other). How do I resolve it?

@allankwan , This not a great structure of data. Unpivot the data

@allankwan , Create month and month sort as columns in your date table to table

 

Month = FORMAT([Date],"mmm")
Month sort = FORMAT([Date],"mm")

 

mark Month sort as sort column for month and use month in visual
