Numerical order out of line in x-axis - separate sorting table?

Hello, team,

 

juliamacg__0-1668612168366.png

 

As you can see in the image, I have a line chart with an x-axis in ascending order but the numerical order is not obeyed. I found this article in the forum regarding a similar issue and the solution proposed is to create a separate sorting table, but it is not clear to me how that should be done. Could anyone help me with this?

 

Thank you so much!

Hi @juliamacg_ ,

 

You can create another table or another calculated column also fine the data should be unique to the value you have used in the X-axis.

 

Example: a field value is <100 das then b field value is 100 (100 is a number type it works)

 

Then you can follow the steps in the article
