Hello,

 

I would like to show the least on the top of the visuals (sorted descending)

Could you support us with a screenshot of the options you have at "...", so we try to help from there?

Hi @MEhrenmueller

 

Please see screenshot for your reference.

Also, formula for ZERO is shown below

 

ZERO = IF(count('2015_POSdata'[COUNT])>0,COUNT('2015_POSdata'[COUNT]),0)

 

I managed to reproduce your problem and solve it:

 

The sort button looks like one button, but actually there are two. 'Z->A' and 'Sort By XXX' are two different buttons with different functionalities. By clicking on Z->A you can reverse the order, while clicking 'Sort By XXX' will activate or deactivate the sorting.

 

Let me know if this worked for you.

 

Hi @Douwe

 

How can I use Z -> A functionality if the options given are only two as per my image below.

First activate the sorting by clicking on 'Sort by ZERO', afterwards the Z->A functionality becomes active.

It descends by station name, not the values. If its possible that the values be arranged descending.

 

Thank you.

Sorry I can't help you any further with the information you are providing. Please provide your power bi file so that we can have a look.

@Douwe

 

How can I provide you with my pbix file? can't search for attach files here as I reply.  Sorry I'm just new in community.

 

Thank you.

Upload it eg. to Onedrive and share the link with us.

Click on the triple dots in the visualization and change the order by clicking once more on Sort by xxx

Hi,

 

It still does not sort the way I expected it to sort. Hence, it sorted chronologically.

 

Hooping I could make it the way I wanted it to be sorted.

 

 

Thank you.

@sclencioco

 

You need to select the field on Axis and set it sort by your fact value. It will sort in descending order as you expected.

Then set order in chart.
