Re: Custom Sorting in PowerBI?

@ahxl

 

You can do essentially the same thing, creating your COLUMNSORT column, but do it in the Query Editor with "Add Column", then save and sort by the new column back out  in the PowerBI intrerface. It will get rid of the circular dependency.

Same for me. I had to delete my chart and create again.

 

Thanks for the tip. A good work around.

Re: Custom Sorting in PowerBI?

Hi All, 

Thank you for sharing the solution. 

 

1. By using reference table

2. Conditional Column

 

I was wondering what is the difference between doing it by using Conditional column and doing the same with calculated column. 

 

Steps Followed :-

1. Go to Data Tab

2. Go to Modelling ribon and select New column

3. Create column using reference column according to what we need to sort. 

 

But sorting is not happening and i am getting error that Reference column could not be sort by Calculated column.

 

Request you to throw light on the same.

Agreed! This is such a basic feature, why it requires such a workaround seems absurd!

How did everyone put the ID in the second column in the newly created table?

What formula is it?

Hi Everyone,

 

This option seems to be completely not working when i tried the same procedure and sorted the stacked column chart my chart started showing all as 100% for all items.

 

Suggest .

 

Thanks,
