    sorting for dd-mmm-yy format (01-Jan-2012) does not work?

    Galina Kozachenko

      Hi Everyone,

       

      I am very new to Tableau. I have a simple table that shows articles, publication date that is in dd-mmm-yy format and read clicks from Google Analytics. I need to sort the table the the publication date in descending order.

       

      Here is what I did:

      1) I set the default date format for the Publication date on the dimension level by going to the format option

       

       

       

      2) Now I am trying to sort it on the column level by going into sort properties and setting descending sort order. but it does not work

       

       

      any idea to what else I can do to have my table sort by the publication date, the latest articles on top?

      thanks

      Galina
