Grouping certain data by month

Hello, so i have used directQuery to import data. I want to see Closed Accounts per month. As you can see i am seeing a bar for each individual day during said months. I want to group all of november into one bar, all december into one bar, ect. I have to use Power Query. The filters i have on are Account Type = Closed & Date Closed = last 6 calendar months. So i would like to see 6 bars in my chart not the multiple like below. If anyone has any advice or a solution to this it would be very much appreciatted. Any further info or dat you require can be sent to you. Thank you

Hi @tristanweeks47 

 

You can add a custom column in the "account" table with below M code to have "YYYYMM" format YearMonth values from [Date Closed] column. Apply the change to Power BI Desktop. Then use this new YearMonth column on X-axis of the column chart to replace the current Date Closed column. 

Date.Year([Date Closed])*100+Date.Month([Date Closed])
