    MM-YYYY sort in Time Series

      Hi Tableau wizards,

      First, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all.

      Still a newbie to Tableau, I have a question, which I think is pretty trivial but can't seem to figure out.


      I have a data set which I need to plot as a time-series line graph.

      My data goes back to Sep 2013.

      My date field in in MM/DD/YY format.

      I want the x-axis to show Sep-13, Oct-13, all the way to Dec-14 (in a continuous time-series, i.e. not broken down by years 2013 and 2014).

      It differentiates between Sep-13 and Sep14 when I have the year in the date hierarchy, but when I remove year and quarter, it puts Sep-13 and Sep14 data together (same with Oct, Nov and Dec data).

      Anyone knows how to re-format this data?

      I am attaching the .twbx


      Thanks in advance.
