Matrix - Sorting a column that is not TOTAL

I have a Matrix report that shows revenue by year in the columns, but the years are created by the invoice date, so a single field. I want to know if I can sort, from highest revenue to lowest, a specif year because I was able to sort only the TOTAL column in the right side.

Hi  @omaffud ,

 

Does my solution above make sense? 

 

Maybe you can post your new idea https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas , to improve the Power BI Desktop.

 

It is a place for customers provide feedback about Microsoft Office products . What’s more, if a feedback is high voted there by other customers, it will be promising that Microsoft Product Team will take it into consideration when designing the next version in the future.

 

Best regards

Hi @omaffud ,

 

You can create rank column like DAX below. Choose the revenue in Field Pane, then click sort by column Rank.

 

Rank= RANKX(FILTER(Table1 ,Table1 [Year]=EARLIER(Table1 [Year])),Table1 [revenue],, Desc, Dense)

I was looking for a simpler solution, like we do in Excel, where we can select the column and sort after that. Maybe this is a suggestion from improvement in Power BI.
