Can we control the sorting for the column headers in a matrix ?The row and the column sorting should be done based on other columns (here i ahve created 2 new columns in the data model Employee_Sort and Days_Sort) which are not there in the matrix table.
Here is what i have created in Power BI matrix table :
As you can see from the above the rows and columns are automatically got sorted by alphabetical order.
But i would like to display as below. Is this possible ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This should be possible. Share the link from where i can download your PBI file.
Thanks for your reply.
Please find the attached pbi file and source data
1. Created Category/Employee table
2. Linked the above tables to the FACT table
3. Created Category/Employee column in the FACT table.
I have replicated the above steps same like yours but it is still not working. Not sure what has been missed out. Please kindly let me know what is that i have missed out here.
Thank you Ashish.
That worked perfectly.
One more small question. Is it possibe to rename the column Total as Employees Total ?
You are welcome. No, i don't think that is possible.
AFAIK, current power bi not support custom order of columns, it only support default sort order. I'd like to suggest you submit an idea for this requirement.
Maybe you can try to add calculate column to modify column with custom prefix string to achieve custom sort order.
Custom Category = VAR _prefix = SWITCH ( [Category], "Not_Applicable", "0_", "0-30 Days", "1_", "31-60 Days", "2_", "61-90 Days", "3_", "91-120 Days", "4_", "120+ Days", "5_", "z_" ) RETURN _prefix & [Category]
Thanks Xiaoxin Sheng for you reply.
There seems to be other related ideas already requested and i have now voted it
Thanks for your SWITCH suggestion, But when i did in that way the row headers are displaying as below and i don't want to see that starting text 0_, 1_, 2_ etc....and I guess we can't get rid of them while displaying. I am not sure.
