Hi @Iklizo ,

 

Please try to add a custom column in Power Query and then change the type of the column to Whole Number.

 

Order_PQ =
Text.End([Date], 4) & Text.PadStart( Text.Select( Text.Start([Date],3), {"0".."9"} ), 2, "0")

Or add the calculated column.

 

Order_calculatedColumn = 
RIGHT ( [Date], 4 ) & FORMAT ( VALUE ( MID ( [Date], 2, 2 ) ), "00" )

vkkfmsft_4-1652406563320.png

 

 

Then sort [Date] column by [Order_PQ] (or [Order_calculatedColumn]) field.

set a index for the dim column by the menue of Sort By Column

@wdx223_Daniel 
Please give example

@PhilipTreacy  
If you look at the screen shot, the period Name of is not sorted correctly that all. I tried sorted by column that won't work.

@Iklizo 

 

Sorry still not clear.  What's the Period Name : P1 2022 etc?  How is this not sorted correctly?  

 

Are you expecting it to be : P1 2022, P2 2022, P3 2022?  If so then you should state that so we don't have to guess what it is you want as a result.  You haven't provided any source data so we have to infer a lot from your image.

 

If this is the issue you mean, you are seeing this because your period names are text, hence what you see is properly sorted text.

 

If you want to see P1 2022, P2 2022 etc then you need to make your periods numeric or create a numeric Sort By column and sort the text period names by that.

 

Regards

 

Phil

Your request is unclear.  Please state clearly the issue and show an example of the result you want.

 

Please supply data, preferably as a file, or at least as a table,  Images on their own are no good to us if we have to retype everything into PQ.

 

Regards

 

Phil
