Ordering of month name , why is it appearing in reverse order?

Hi all

 

I have a column in my dataset which gives a date, I have created a Calculated Column using the following formula 

Column = FORMAT('Customer Feedback Data'[Submit Date], "MMM")

 

This has converted all the date format values into the Month Names (Aug, Sep, Oct)

 

However, when I plot my graph using a Line Chart, for some reason its appearing as Oct, Sep, Aug.... I want these values reversed, how do I do this? 

 

Please see the screenshot below

Thanks

Hi

 

In this case your converting date format into text and this will be sort based on alphabetical order (ascending or descending) not on monthly order (Jan, Feb, Mar etc). 

 

What you can do is you can filter your month name column by another column (eg. Month number column)

For that create a new column with month number and then filter your month name column by that column.

 

Create a new column for month noCreate a new column for month noadd your month name columnadd your month name columnsort your month name column by month no columnsort your month name column by month no column
