I tried applying "Sort ascending" on Web id and then placing all the columns in the sort formula. i,.e {Colum1,ascending},{column2, ascending}

This is working fine in power query editor but as soon as i am applying close and apply, the sort is getting distorted.


Can anyone please help in this multi sort column issue please.

Hi @batmobile111 ,

As @lbendlin  mentioned, if you want to show specific sort, we usually sort this in visual part. Sort in power query will change when you put data in visual, it is just data model preview. You could refer to Table looks different in Query editor and Table View (third reply) for details.

By the way, you could refer to @lbendlin 's second link for multiple sort in visual. I forget this feature, he also share this feature to me.

You don't need to sort in Power Query unless that is required for the next transformation steps.


In the Power BI UI you can put your data in a table and sort that table by multiple columns.

Hi @lbendlin ,


Thanks for the link. This trick works in the report tab(sift + left click) easily, I tried and it got successful.


I want to do it in the DATA tab for calculations.

Anyway is it possible on the data tab ?

Calculations in the data tab?

I am sorry,My bad 
Just an amatuer 🙂 
Thanks @lbendlin , @dax  for the solution.
