That should be a DAX formula. Click on the Data Tab in the black bar on the left hand side and then click on Calculated column formula. Write this formula in the relevant table
Hope this helps.

See my post data 6 MArch 2019. I have shared a link there.
How can sort by Jan-2019-Dec-2019 instead of date?
Hello Guys,The process is quite simple.Create a New Column as:
Modified Date = FORMAT('table name'[date column], "yyyy mm dd")
This will help you in mapping:
Jan 2019 -> 2019 01 01
Feb 2019 -> 2019 02 01
Dec 2019 -> 2019 12 01
Now build your visualization and use the sort option to sort it using the Modified Date column in ascendingHope this helps.Let me know if you need anything else.
