Months Without Alphabetical Order

7 - Meteor

My reports keep putting the "Month" in alphabetical order. How do I get it to know that I need them in calendar order? Thanks!

I recommend creating a new field that converts the current date labels to a numeric format by using the following formula DateTimeParse([Name],"%b_%Y"). This new field can be sorted and this will correct your chart.


An example solution is attached.
