How to sort Month-Year date filed in trend chart in Qliksense?

Hi All,

I have a requirement like show the rolling count for last 12 Months.

here i have date field CreateDate, 'YYYY/MM/DD' format

and i have created date Filed like

Month(CreateDate)&'-'& Date(CreateDate,'YY') as Month_Year,

for last 12 months i ahve created on flg like 

if(CreateDate <= MonthStart(Today(0),-12),1,0) as Last12M_Flag,

That is my script , logic for getting last 12 month data 

here my Dimension  is  Month_Year but here it is not sorting properly, it is displaying Dec-19 first value, May-19, Mar-19,Jun-19, Oct-19, Nov-19, Sept-19 so it is displaying in this way and data is also rolling in this way but this is not correct 


Please guide me here how can i calculate last 12 months cumulative count in scripting side.

Create Month_Year like this instead

Date(MonthStart(CreateDate),'MMM-YY') as Month_Year,
