Did you select the DayMonth coumn and Sort by Month Number column?,

We are sorting one column based on the values of another column, It works for me

You need to have additional column (eg. oryginal_date) with standard date type format eg 2022-01-13 and then you can select your DayMonth column and select Order by oryginal_date. Note that it won't work correctly if you will have 2 same dates eg 11 May = 11 May 2022 || 11 May 2023 would have different order value.

Hi tried that and it did not work

Let's assume you have such column as a text:

 

DayMonth

08 Jan
09 Jan
10 Jan
11 Jan
12 Jan
05 Mar
06 Mar
07 Mar
08 Mar

 

In Power Query M add custom column that is duplicate of your existing column, but formatted as a date.

Oryginally you have wrong order on your visual like this:

bolfri_2-1673626747217.png

 

But if you will do like I said so select DayMonth column and with Column tools set "Sort by column" as DayMonth - as date you will get something like this:
