Order Matrix Month-Year in ascending order

 

Dear Community,


I'm having trouble sorting a Matrix  in ascending order by  Month-year (Jan 2013- text format) that takes the last 13 months based on the date picker . Do you have any solution? Many Thanks

To sort the months you can add a custom column to the 'Calendar table' in Power Query that will allow you to sort the [Month_Year_Short] column:

 

Text.From([Year]) & Text.PadStart(Text.From([Month_No]), 2, "0")

 

 

If you are needing to create a measure to dynamically look back 13 months I would suggest watching this video. It can be modified to 13 months https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8Rm7dwM6gc

Do you have a Calander or Dates table in your model. If so what columns do you have in it?

 

 

Hi, below a screenshot of the model.

In the matrix I use the "Month-Year-Short" field in the Calendar Table.
In the date filter I use the date key field from the Tine-Dim
