Create an graph chart order by 1, 2, ..., '360 forward'

Hello Qlik community. I would like to ask for some help.

I am creating a report that creates some sort of Aging of the time elapsed between a good receipt and an invoice receipt. The information comes partially from Excel. The aging classification is 1, 7, 15, 30, 60, 90, 120, 180, 360, 360 forward. When I did that, the 360 forward part put it at the beginning of the chart. So later I tried to convert it to text, but this happens (image).

Could anyone help me ?

Thank you!

define your dimension as a dual value so you have both text and numeric representation of the values. The dimension will display the text values sorted by the numeric value.

Try creating the classification values using the dual function so they get a numeric value and a textual format. Give 360 forward a numeric value that's larger than 360 and the text value '360 forward'. Then you can sort the classification value numerically to get the sort order correct.
