I am trying to use the scatter plot in power bi desktop. In my x-axis the month is not ordered in proper manner even though I have set the order of date column as per the month num. Can someone help me with this?

Hello @amitchandak

Thanks for your reply.

I have done it already in the data view but still doesn't works.

As you can see all other months are in proper order except October and November which are coming after January. I don't understand the reason for this.

@newbie9292 , You need to use a sort column for that

 

Month = FORMAT([Date],"mmm")
Month sort = month([DAte])

 

Select column, got to column tools -> sort by column -> choose Month sort
