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.

Re: Custom Sorting in PowerBI?

All these workarounds for just a simple sort task, unbeleivable how difficult it is

Re: Custom Sorting in PowerBI?

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