## Sorting a calculated dimension

Hello everyone,

I have a bar graph with a calculated dimension like this:

= if (budget <= 100, 'bis ' & 100,

if(budget > 100 and budget <= 200, 'bis ' & 200,

...

)

'bis' is the german word for 'up to'. The result is a diagram like this: As you see, the calculated dimension (x-axis) is not in the correct order. Correct would be:

bis 100

bis 200

bis 300

bis 400

...

bis 1000

...

I can not sort by number or by alphabetical order, the results are always wrong. But how can I sort such a dimension with an expression?

## Re: Sorting a calculated dimension

use dual

= if (budget <= 100, dual('bis & 100', 1),

if(budget > 100 and budget <= 200, dual('bis 200',2),

...

)

and then sort them by numeric value
