Sorting Data Manually

Hi!

 

How do I sort a stacked bar chart by age group in ascending order? 

From Below 18 Years old to 65+ Years old?

Thanks!

I take it you've created those "Bins" with a conditional column

I'm calling this column Category in the image below

Then I use it to create another Column called Custom Sort which we'll use to sort the Bars

See image below - let me know if you have any questions...

Query Editor - Sort By Column.gif

Hope this helps! Smiley Happy

 

EDIT: I've used the Query Editor for both columns

but you can use SWITCH statements (nested IFs) to get the same results with DAX created columns! Smiley Happy

Click the ellipses ... in the top right corner of the Visual - Sort By

I already tried it but the result looks like this:

In my mind it shoutd be:

Below 18 Years Old

18-24 Years Old

25-34 Years Old

35-44 Years Old

45-54 Years Old

55-64 Years Old

65+ Years Old

 

is there a way to manually sort it?

 

Thanks!
