Sorting columns with display values
If you define display values, data in visualizations that use them will, by default, be sorted by the alphabetical order of the display values. However, it is also possible to use display values but to show the data sorted by the original values. This gives you the opportunity to, for example, sort the bars in a bar chart by another column, or using a custom expression.
- On the authoring bar, click Data in analysis , and click on the column you want to change the display values for.
- In the expanded flyout, make sure that Details on selected column is selected.
- In the lower part of the expanded flyout, click the settings button next to Display values .
- In the Display values dialog, select whether to Sort on display values or to Sort on original column values.
