## Sort by Day of Week

Hello,

I have a column that list a range of dates from 2013 - present. I was asked to analyze the data by each day of the week, for example, Monday would display specific information that occured just on every monday and the same for tuesday, etc.

People have been pointing me to

`WeekDay = WEEKDAY(Table[Date],2)`

But it is not working. We are attempting to analyze the amount of tickets we recieve per day of the week and would like vizualize our busiest days.

Thanks

Hi @Anonymous,

Suppose your data table that lists a range of dates from 2013 to today is called "Table". Then, new a calculated column and type into this DAX formula: WeekDay = WEEKDAY(Table[Date],2)

The numer "2" determine the start weekday is Monday in a week. To help you understand the WEEKDAY function, please see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/weekday-function-dax

Hi @Anonymous,

After adding a calculated column WeekDay = WEEKDAY(Table[Date],2), you should place [WeekDay] column and [tickets amount] column into a table visual. Choose "Sum" as its aggregation function, it will automatically sum up the ticket amounts sorted by each weekday.

@v-yulgu-msftThank you! WeekDay = WEEKDAY(Table[Date],2), Do I enter this as is? It seems to be having a problem with "TABLE". I am brand new to DAX. What is table refering to? Is the "2" refering to the number of a day of the week, "Tues = 2, Wed = 3 etc."?

Thank you and sorry for the beginner questions.
