Hi, I have created a pivot table based on Months. Please refer to the attached screenshoot

The pivot table arranges the months in alphabetical order, but I do not want it to be like that, and it is too troublesome to drag them one by one. Is there any way to let the pivot table arrange it starting from January?

This means that your dates are not real dates but text looking like dates
In your source data add a column with following formula dragged down
Excel Formula:
=DATE(2020,MONTH(DATEVALUE(LEFT(A1,3)&"1")),1)
and use this as date for your Pivot Table
Sorting will now work as requested and format as needed
