Try this for the sort expression

=Match(Only({1}[Wind Direction]),'N','NNE','NE','EEN','E','ESE','SE','SSE',

'S','SSW', 'SW', 'WSW', 'W','WSW','W','WNW','NW','NNW')

But do you have extra directions?

Hi, Try this for sort order:

Aggr(Max({1}id),[Wind Direction])

Also, there were no id values for 'SSW' or 'WSW' which causes the above to be a bit off (they return null and end up on top). If you add those the above should work.

Add a pick to your sort expression

=Pick(match([Wind Direction],'N','NNE','NE','ENE','E','ESE','SE','SSE','S','SSW','W','WSW','W','WNW','NW','NNW'),1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16)
