How to sort a calculated column in a matrix


I am seeking help on how to sort a matrix visual on a calculated column.  In the example shown I have a simple table and two matrix visuals.  The top right simply places the table in a matrix.  The lower right is a matrix of the monthly rank of product units.  I would like to sort the lower right matrix by one of the months.  How can this be done?  Thanks in advance.

@MidtownMo , You need to have sort column and mark that as sort column


Month Year = FORMAT([Date],"mmm")
Month Year sort = month([DAte])

Hi.  I appreciate the quick response but it is not quite what I am looking for.  I don't have month year or a date table, so it's not as easy as sorting by date.  Instead, I'd like to be able to sort the matrix containing the rank on any month, preferably via a slicer.  Thanks.
