Displaying Data in a specific month order

So everything we do in higher education is by academic year, which starts July 1 and ends June 30.  So when I want to display data in a bar graph by the academic year from beginning to end, how would I accomplish this instead of getting alphabetical?

 

I need it displayed in the following order:

 

  • July, August, September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May, June

 

With July being the first in the table and June being the last.

Re: Displaying Data in a specific month order

Hi @JMWDBA

 

I suggest you to create an additional column in your date table.

Defining that July is 1, August is 2 an so.

Then define the sort order by this extra column and hide the extra column.

 

Please contact me, if you need some help.
