Display Duration type Columns in Report view and Sort them

I'm a new user to power bi. I have found out that in the report view when we use a graph and use "show data points as a table" only columns of type text will be displayed. I can display numbers, dates and duration type columns by duplicating and coverting them to type text in power query. But the issue is when I use "show data points as a table" the columns with duration data cannot be sorted in ascending or descending. Kindly help.

 

Thanks

@sanjeewauom , if data type is time, it will sort. If it duration created as text, then create a sort column and mark that as sort column

 

You can do this power query for sort column

sort col=  Duration.Days([D1])*1000000 + Duration.Hours([D1])*10000 + Duration.Minutes([D1])*100 + Duration.Second([D1])*100

 

 

Else create two column in dax

duration 1 = [d1]

Duration sort =  <Create a logic based on format>

 

mark Duration sort as sort column for Duration 1 and use that in visual
