Dates sorted incorrectly in bar chart

I've created 2 bar charts to show our electricity and gas costs over several billing periods.  Under sort I selecting Billing Period, but the data is displayed in the incorrect order and it does not change if I switch it from ascending to descending.

Hey @Justin P, a few of us are having the exact same problem - bar chart sorting is broken when you add a breakdown dimension. Here's our original thread: https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Data-Studio/Bar-chart-Sort-by-Month-not-working/td-p/11137...

 

Hopefully someone from Google will reply with a fix soon! This is definitely a bug.
