How to custom sort Sort X axis of clustered column chart by two different values?

I have a clustered column chart with University Name and Student Campus in X axis. I have categeroised the colleges by Campus location using Grid Lines  in X axis of the visual , but as next step i need to sort the graph again in X axis by one of the Values in Y axis (Total Program Tution fees) which i am not able to achieve. Eventually , i need colleges sorted by Total Tution Fees and also Campus wise seggregation using Grid Lines in Visual. I have attached the visual which has Capus wise deatils but not sorted by Tution Fee values. Please help.

Hi @Tsam ,

 

Based on my test, Concatenate labels work well when there is no sort (which causes an implicit sort correctly), or sort by the x-axis:

This is due to a default sort that gets applied in one of the creation paths.

So in summary, I think it's impossible to sort by value again after the Concatenate labels option has been enabled.
