Trying to get bar chart to show same month historically


I'm trying to create a bar chart that, for the current month selected (e.g. May), shows sales values for every month of May in the data: May 2018, May 2019, May 2020, May 2021, May 2022, May 2023 etc


Is this possible in Power BI?

Ah, OK thanks, I'll try it.

In Power Query, use the Date.Month function to create a new variable. 

Then put this new variable into a slicer. 

Change your chart so that the X-axis is categorical rather than continuous.
