Date Slicer Sorting

[ Edited ]

Hello All,

   Good Morning. I am having an issue of sorting the dates in my slicers. Please refer the below screenshot for understanding what kind of sorting is needed for me.

 

I wrote a conditional statement to sort, but it returned a different result which I don't want.

 

Sample file:

slicer sample pbix

 

My requirement is,

1. Months should be in Chronological order

2. Years should be in Ascending order (say 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and so on...)

How can I get the output? Please give me your suggestions and it is much appreciated.

 

Many thanks,

Praveen.

Hi @praveenkumarv

 

You can add a calculated column in your date dimensions table as below.

 

YearMonthNum = Time_Dimension[Date].[Year]*100 +  Time_Dimension[Date].[MonthNo]

 

Then you can go to Modeling and sort the FiscalMonth Year on this new column.sort by fiscalyearnum.png

 

 

If this helped you, please mark this post as an accepted solution and like to give KUDOS .

 

Regards,

Affan
