Sorting by two things in table

Hi Team,

I have a table that looks like the below (example). I'd like to filter by Item and then cost. 

For example, i'd expect row 2 to be "A, TAS, 2, Three" and row 3 to be "A, QLD, 1, two" . 

I have tried to sort in query editor mode, but when back in my table visual, it does not sort poperly. Any help is much appreciated.

BVIC4two
CNSW5one
CQLD4two

@Anonymous,

 

Table can be sorted by multiple columns, but I'm afraid this can only be achieved in power query. In power query, click advanced editor using M code like below:

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WclTSUfILDgeSJkCcn5eqFKsDEQ30cQGShkBcUp4PFw1xDAaSRiDRjKJUiGonuBnGSGaARMM8naEmw8xwhqs1RVLrDLcPXS3EPjOEfbEA", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Item = _t, state = _t, Cost = _t, Supplier = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Item", type text}, {"state", type text}, {"Cost", Int64.Type}, {"Supplier", type text}}),
    Result = Table.Sort(#"Changed Type",{{"Item", Order.Ascending}, {"Cost", Order.Descending}})
in
    Result

May I clarify that when you say power query do you mean query editor within PowerBI? 

@Anonymous,

 

Yes, the code I've put is in query editor.
