How to reverse bar of Stacked column chart?

How to reverse bar of Stacked column chart?

I prefer the "yes" (shaded) to be at the bottom so I can make a percentage calculation target line at the bottom.

Hey,

 

the order of the segments in a stacked column depends of the sequence of the segments.

By default this sequence (sort order) is derived from the name of the members (used as legend), from the root of yaxis (0) an element named "A" is at the bottom and an element named "Y" is at the top. To change this sequence, you have to change the sortoder. This can be done more or less very easily:

Go to the model tab of mark the column where you want to change the sequence and assign a column that contains an index value representing the sortorder (this can be achieved by an DAX satement to create an calculated column like this

 

SortOrderStatus = IF('Table2'[status] = "yes", 1, 2)

sort by column.png

 

Done!

Done!

 

Hope this helps

Hey Tom,

 

I am trying my very hardest to get through this step of the process. Would you mind explaning this step a bit further?  I have 4 different data types that I need to sort through and am lost as to where to put this particular function. It would be very appreciated.

Thanks Tom. This worked!

Hello!!

 

I'm a new user in pbi. If I have understood your question, I believe that you have to change the order in value.

I hope help you.
