Sort data matrix by column values

 

Capture.PNGHi all,

 

I need to be able to sort this data matrix by the values in column 201806. For example in this case, Cardiology would be listed third highest. How can I do this?

 

I appreciate any feedback.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Hi @mlane1

 

Does it sort for you when you click on the column header?

It does not. It just spotlights the column.

Oh ok, and do you get any sorting options in the context menu that pops up when you click the three small dots in the very top right-hand corner of the visual?

Re: Sort data matrix by column values

Yes, it allows me to sort by the data field name, thus total counts for that service line. Which shows in the picture. However I don't want it to sort by the total, I want it to sort largest to smallest by 201806 column values.
