    Problem sorting semesters

    Phil Simon



      I'm trying to fix a sorting issue in a Tableau workbook.


      Here is the workbook.


      Ideally, I'd like Summer '18 to precede Fall '18. In the Excel spreadsheet, the semesters are text fields, not dates. I suppose that I could just dummy up a date and recreate the tabs. That seems like too much work. Oddly, this worked for 2016 and 2017. For some reason, it's not working now. I've sorted the data in chronological order but that doesn't seem to matter.


      I've searched the forums for custom sort options and I'm not having any luck.


      Any ideas, Tableau wizards? Thanks.
