Slicer in horizontal orientation does not show Month in chronologic order - How to Solve?

Hi there,

 

I have a slicer for filter Months in horizontal orientation but it does not let me have it in chronologic order. My table already has ID for each mont (from 1 to 12) and it's already sort by this column but nothing happens

 

Any ideas?

@Anonymous You need a numeric "Sort By" column for months. So in your Power Query put a numeric month number and then use that as your "Sort By" column for you month names column.

@Greg_Deckler That's what I've done. Open the table with the query editor, sort the column Month Number ascending and then Close&Apply. Am I missing something?
