Sorting year weeks in Power BI

Hello,

 

I would like to ask how to properly sort year week because in visual it seems unsorted:

Here is the view of it

Hi @Analitika ,

 

Due to the "-" in the middle of the Year-Week number, that value is stored as text. This is the reason the sorting is not working for you.

 

In order to sort it correctly, you can replace the Year-Week formula you are currently using with the following:

 

Year-Week = 
    VAR __Year = Year( [Date] )
    VAR __WeekNum = WEEKNUM( [Date] )

RETURN
    IF( __WeekNum < 10, CONCATENATE( __Year, "-0" & __WeekNum ), CONCATENATE( __Year, "-" & __WeekNum ))

 

The difference is the "0" before any single-digit week numbers. This allows the sorting to work correctly.

Hi @Analitika ,

Please create a new column on your date table like below :

YearWeekIndex = dim_date[Year] * 100 +dim_date[Week of Year]
Then select your YearWeek column, go to sort by column and click on 'YearWeekIndex'. Your yearweek field will now be sorted using this column.
