Line Trending Data either adding values or not connecting dates

Hi everyone,


Hopefully a simple request for help. I was able to get it to work once and now I cannot so I feel like I am missing something.

 

What I want to do:

I take a sample of data every month. I want to take that sample and place it in BI and then use the forecast analytics to project seasonal and linear trending.

 

I was able to do this previous but now I cannot. Whenever I attempt to just display the data it either adds up the data in the column or it doesn't understand the data is linear and does not connect the dots in a line chart.

 

Here is the format of the data that worked the first time.

 

Friday, January 1, 20211,111,899
Monday, February 1, 20211,004,910
Monday, March 1, 20211,006,049
Thursday, April 1, 20211,175,960
Saturday, May 1, 20211,038,015
Tuesday, June 1, 20211,047,690
Thursday, July 1, 2021925,104
Sunday, August 1, 20211,281,344
Wednesday, September 1, 20211,125,269
Friday, October 1, 20211,036,265
Monday, November 1, 20211,010,210
Wednesday, December 1, 20211,054,195
Saturday, January 1, 20221,064,466
Tuesday, February 1, 20221,083,297
Tuesday, March 1, 20221,000,819
Friday, April 1, 20221,149,080
Sunday, May 1, 20221,145,499
Wednesday, June 1, 20221,102,082
Friday, July 1, 20221,062,686
Monday, August 1, 20221,173,327

 

Here is how I got it to work the first time that I cannot duplicate now.
