    Date order behaved randomly...a bug?

      Sorry that I can't show a screen capture due to the policy --

       

      But it's really a simple graph -- w/ just one measure (nums) on the Y-axis and http:// links (one dimension) on the X-axis. Dates (09/01/16 to 09/30/16) are brought in from excel -- either to show on X-axis or show on Tooltip  (dates in Excel are already sorted correctly).

       

      But once they are in Tableau -- no matter how the dates are sorted (even w/ manual sorting to enforce the correct order -- 9/1, 9/2, 9/3...),  on X-axis or Tooltip, the dates are still displaying in a random order like 9/26, 9/6, 9/13, 9/27... -- my version of tableau is 9.3.4. What's happened? Also, why couldn't I create a dual axis on "http links and dates"? In fact, the Edit Axis option is not even available.

       

      Thanks a lot for your expertise!
