Sorting a visual using text-based ranges

I have a table that I has a column recording the FTE for each company in the list. I have created an additional column that has created FTE ranges, i.e.:

0-4

5-9

10-24

25-49

50-99

100-149

150-199

200+

 

When I use the FTE Ranges as the axis on my visual, I can't sort in this order. If I try and sort by FTE Range it orders them as follows:

0-4

100-149

10-24

150-199

200+

25-49

50-99

5-9

 

Any ideas?

or better could use " " (2 blanks or 1 blank depending the number of digits) instead "0"

let
    Source = Table.FromRecords(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i65WcgtxVbJSMtA1UarVgfEMDQx0DU0sUUR0jVBUmAJVWCKrMDIw0EbmmuqiGABUj6LcVBfIiwUA",BinaryEncoding.Base64),Compression.Deflate))),
    sort = Table.Sort(Source, {each Number.From(Text.SplitAny([FTE],"-+"){0}), Order.Ascending})
in
    sort

@BJE - Use a separate colum with numeric sort values. Use the Sort By feature to sort your text column by your numeric column.

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

Thanks. Have tried that - not changing my visual.
