Table Relationship not working with RELATED

I have created groups (bins) for lengths of fish, when using those groups as a legend the sort is ordered incorrectly. I have created the custom sort table with the order I would like them in and also created the relationship which is 1:Many between my groups in the original table and the sort table I just made. When trying to create a Custom Sort column using RELATED it tells me the relationship does not exist. When using RELATEDTABLE it refers to the measure not specifying an aggregation. My question is: am I able to sort by a grouped value? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @nickhukriede ,


Do you want to group values in different intervals? And use this column to establish relationships with other tables?
Please give us a sample data.

It is odd that you bins are not in the right order.  You have already adjust sorting on the visual itself to confirm it is using your bins column to sort?  In any case, I usually use a switch function in the sort by column if there is a small number of items to sort.  For example 


SortColumn = Switch(Table[ColumnToSort], "B", 1, "A", 2, "C", 3)


If this works for you, please mark it as the solution.  Kudos are appreciated too.  Please let me know if not.
