@EdwinPolo , Unpivot the month columns, Then you should be able to easily create a visual

Hi @EdwinPolo ,

 

As  amitchandak  mentioned as above, Unpivot your month columns should be a good idea to help you achieve your goal. I think you need to do some other transformation for your table.

1. Select [Contrato] column and Unpivot other columns (Month columns) 

2. Group By your table by [Contrato] column and add a number type [Index] column

For reference: Create Row Number for Each Group in Power BI using Power Query

3. Sort your text type [Month] column by [Index] column.
