Create a sort column using DAX

Ive created a calculated date table, so i am unable to go into edit queries to add a column.

 

Need a DAX formula to sort the Month, Year column in order by date. Example below.

 

Date          |   Month, Year    |  Sort Column

1/1/2019   |  January, 2019   |         1

1/2/2019   |  January, 2019   |         1
.

.

2/1/2019   |  February, 2019 |         2

2/2/2019   |  February, 2019 |         2
.

.

3/1/2019   |  March, 2019     |         3

3/2/2019   |  March, 2019     |         3

.

.

.

1/1/2020   | January, 2020    |        13
1/2/2020   | January, 2020    |        13

 

Additional context if needed: the date column is by day, which i will need for other parts of the report, but i have some pages of the report that only can be viewed by month, and i will have the end user select the month in that slicer, hense why i need the sort column to produce the slicer in date order.

Try something like:

 

Sort = YEAR([Date]) & FORMAT(MONTH([Date]),"00")
