Struggling with Month Sorting

Hi All

I am struggling with Month sorting in QLIK SENSE 3.1  for couple of days , I found solutions from this community, but it seems not works with me.


Also, I found DUAL function in QLIK Sense 3.1 is a little bit different from what said on documents.  Which said on documents is DUAL(text,num) , but it looks  work as DUAL(num,text).


So would you please help me out,thanks!

My  data model is:

Admit:

LOAD

    "Admitted Date",

    1 as  "admission"

FROM [lib://QVD files (sog_wangj00)/INMR.qvd]

(qvd)

where year([Admitted Date])>=2014

;

I want to compare the number by Month for each year like below chart:

it's not sort by month number.

I put 2 dimensions:

dimension-1 : Month

dual(month([Admitted Date]),text(month([Admitted Date])))

dimension-2 : Year

year([Admitted Date])

and I also put the sorting as numeric:

thanks!

Re: Struggling with Month Sorting

You should simplify your first dimension:

In the first chart:   Month( [Admitted Date])

In the second chart:   Month( AddMonths( [Admitted Date] , 6 ) )

Then turn off "Use continuous scale" and then the month names come on your X-axis in the right order:

Re: Struggling with Month Sorting

Thanks very much, it works perfectly !

FYI , for 2nd chart, i did a little tweak to show Month Name in Fiscal order.   for Instance: our Fiscal month is : Jul,Aug,Sept,Oct,Nov,Dec,Jan,Feb,Mar,Apr,May,Jun. 

i put     dual(month([Admitted Date]),month(addmonths([Admitted Date],6)))   as dimension,  and also turn off "Use Continuous Scale"  , it works well.

thanks again!
