Sort Months by dates in date table

Hi,

 

I have my date table sorted by date and in visual my month are not sorted by by the date but by months alphabetically.
I have marked my table as date table too.

 

My date table:

My two visuals.

I disabled the hidden local date tables and created a hierarchy for above visual.

Does the hierarchy need to be sorted somehow?

 

Thanks for help.

K.

 

EDIT:

 

 

 

Calendar = 
ADDCOLUMNS (
     CALENDAR(DATE(1981;01;01);DATE(2080;12;31));
    "CALENDAR YEAR"; YEAR ( [DATE] );
    "MONTH NAME"; FORMAT ( [DATE]; "MMMM" );
    "MONTH NUMBER"; MONTH ( [DATE] );
    "WEEKDAY"; FORMAT ( [DATE]; "DDDD" );
    "WEEKDAY NUMBER"; WEEKDAY( [DATE];2 );
    "WEEK NUMBER";WEEKNUM( [DATE];21);
    "DAY"; DAY([DATE]);
    "QUARTER"; "Q" & TRUNC ( ( MONTH ( [DATE] ) - 1 ) / 3 ) + 1
)

The sort column did not save correctly. I did it and it is working.

Try sorting the month by the month number under the modeling tab.

I tried that before I posted and I does not work for me for some reason. Adding my dax to original post.

Sometimes the visual by default sort it on Value. Have you checked it is sorted on the month column?

 

If possible please share a sample pbix file after removing sensitive information.Thanks.

I added link to my dummy file where I wanted to just create calendar table and I did exactly the steps from my original file and it still doesn't work, so you can check it.
