## How to sort a Time Duration

I have created a calculated column that gives me a Time Duration in Days, Hours, Minutes, Seconds.  What I would like to do now is be able to sort the column in my table visual, but it is not putting it in the correct order.  Please see the attached image.  Can someone tell me how to be able to sort by this column?  Thank you for your assistance!

I solved my problem by fixing the formatting of the Value.  I added a second "0" to the day portion of the following code and it worked.

FORMAT(dayNo,"#00")&" day "&FORMAT(hourNo,"#00")&":"&FORMAT(minuteNO,"#00")&":"&FORMAT(secondNo,"#00")

Hi @Rebender,

```Final rank =
RANKX (
Dataset2,
(
RANKX ( Dataset2, LEFT ( Dataset2[Duration], 2 ),, ASC )
+ DIVIDE (
RANKX ( Dataset2, RIGHT ( Dataset2[Duration], 8 ),, ASC ),
COUNTROWS ( Dataset2 ) + 1
)
),
,
ASC,
DENSE
)```

Thank you for your quick response, but that did not work.  It still sorted it in the same order.  If you notice in the picture, it is going from 1 day, 11 day, 12, 2 day.  I need it to go 1 day, 2 day, 11 day, 12 day.  Would it be better if I used the mintes column that I used to format my duration in the Final Rank column instead???
