Sort string of number in chart

Hi everyone,

 

In my table, there is data for example like this: Group 1, Group 2, Group 3, Group 10, Group 20, Group 100...

 

When I create a chart to show these groups, the chart displays in the order Group 1, Group 10, Group 100, Group 2...

 

Is there a way to show the group in the order of number?

 

Thank you

You can add another sorting item in the table. Below is an example regarding how to sort weeks. You can use it as a reference for sorting groups.

 

For the Weeksort, use number for ordering and make sure the column type of Weeksort is Number in Power B. Select the Week column, click Modeling > Sort by Column and then choose sort by Weeksort. After that, you should get the order to sort by (Week 1, Week 2 etc)
