That is a lot more elegant than the solution I was attempting to work towards. Thanks!

what exactly doesn't PBI like?

 

Weekly Data.png

I am new to Power BI and have tried to plot similar weekly data. I tried using the formula given in the post but I couldn't get it to work. Please could somebody show me how to do this so that I can show data collected on a weekly basis on a graph, and show the date rather than week number on the axis (just as in the example above)

@Sean

Thanks for the fast reply! What's going on in your table with Week?

Week = YEAR(Table[Date])&"-"&WEEKNUM(Table[Date])

@travbum Well since you said "elegant" now I feel compelled to give you the solution that will sort weeks 1 thru 9 properly

 

Year-Week =
    YEAR ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) & "-"
        & CONCATENATE (
            IF ( WEEKNUM ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) < 10, "0", "" ),
            WEEKNUM ( 'Calendar'[Date] )
        )
