Hi @Anonymous 

your column [Calendar Month Number] stores month number without leading 0.

to fix it you should either change format this field or rewrite column like this

yyyymmdigit = if('Date'[Calendar Month Number]<10;CONCATENATE('Date'[Calendar Year];concatenate("0";'Date'[Calendar Month Number]));CONCATENATE('Date'[Calendar Year];'Date'[Calendar Month Number]))

Hi @Anonymous ,

What is the type of your [YYYYMM] column, Date or Text?

If it's Date type, you can refer to @Tahreem24 's answer.

If it's Text type, you'd better to convert this column to a date type.

So how does the column come from? is it your original data?

If it comes from a combination of the other two columns, you can refer to @az38 's answer.

YYYYMM = CONCATENATE([YYYY]&" ", [MM])

Then, convert this column to a date type.

If the column is original data, firstly, you need to split the column, then regroup.

Hi @Anonymous 

create new column

YYYYMMdigits = CONCATENATE('Date'[Fiscal Year];'Date'[Fiscal Month Sort Order])

then pick your field YYYYMM in the Field Pane. Go to Sort By Column button and select YYYYMMdigits
