Sort in matrix months?

Hey all,

 

is it possible to sort the months in descending order in a matrix? So August is first at the top.

Hi Azaterol,

 

This is how I would do it:

Go to data

In your Date table I would create 2 additional columns called 'MonthDesc' and 'MonthDescKey'.

MonthDesc = FORMAT('Date'[Date], "MMM")

MonthDescKey = 32 + (-1*MONTH('Date'[Date]))

Then sort 'MonthDesc' by 'MonthDescKey' (Option: Sort By column)

Once that is done you can go to report view open a table with 'Year' and 'MonthDesc' and sort by 'Year'.

There might be easier solution.

Hope this helps!
