Hi,

You can sort Month by using Pick Match Functions(PFB) in Sortby Expresstion under the listbox property and then you can add this to master item.

pick(Match(YourMonthField,'Jan','Feb','Mar','Apr','May','Jun','Jul','Aug','Sep','Oct','Nov','Dec'),1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12)

or you can achieve the same thing in backend- master calender using dual function PFB.

Dual(YourMonthField, YourMonthNumber)

I,e Dual(CalenderMonth, CMonth)

where Cmonth is Month(TempDate) as CMonth,

in a same way you can sort the year as well.


if you found this helpful,  please mark helpful or correct

Regards,

Hi ,

Thanks for your response. I want to Add master-item(Dimension),because I need to use it by selection bar.

For the first solution: field shows number not  Jan、Feb and so on.My client hope show Jan、Feb…

For the second solution,when I select Month field, I do not want to display YourMonthNumber on he selection bar.


Any Idea?


What's more, can I sort :Year-->Month. Year is at the first place. Of course maybe I have many filters, I want to sort them according to my idea.

Try sorting the master item by its related date field using the custom expression then min(Date([DateField])) ascending or descending.

Hi ,

Thanks for your response. I need to create master-item(dimension). I find  when I use a expression in master item dimension.  The selection bar will not display it.  This is a bug?
