Months are not sorted according to calendar months in Column Chart in POWER BI

Any Solution ? 

Months are not sorted according to calendar months in Column Chart in POWER BI

 

I have insert two calculated columns and applied DAX

MonthN = MONTH([ORDER DATE])

 

MonthT = FORMAT([ORDER DATE],"mmm")

 

And then I put in Column chart Chart to see sales trend. But unable to sort the months. Even I made sort by MonthN which generates number from the given dates and made them ascending order but still no success. 

 

Any solution ?

Re: Months are not sorted according to calendar months in Column Chart in POWER BI

Are you, by chance, trying to solve this by sorting the month number column, itself?  If so, that will not work.  You need to select the Month Name column, and then choose the "Sort by Column" option.  From there, choose to sort by the month number column.

That will turn your chart from looking like this:
