Sorting Data in Power BI Desktop–Sort By Column

One of the things I like about Power BI is the way I can sort my data.  Take the report below. In it we can see that I am showing revenue based on month, but you’ll notice quickly that my months do not show in the correct order.  They are shown alphabetically instead of Jan – Dec.


No big deal.  I simply drop down to the table window showing my data and select the column in question.  When I do that I can then click on the Sort By Column drop down and choose how I want to sort that column.



Now we see that my report is showing correctly.
