Crystal Chart and Month Number vs. Month Name

Experts-

I have a chart which displays monthly information on the X axis.

If in Chart Expert, I show SUM values at the change of month number and City, it sequences my data correctly (1,2,3...), representing Jan, Feb, Mar.

If in Chart Expert I change the SUM to be at the change of month name and City, it 'incorrectly' sequences data by the month's alphabetical order (April, December, February, ...)

How can I order my X axis data by month number, but display the month name on the X axis. I see there's a Chart Sort Order with a formula option. Is there something here I can use? Also, the number of months will be dynamic at run-time. Sometimes it will be the first six months of the year, other times it will be the full 12 months.

Thanks

In the Chart expert when change the SUM to be at the change of month name and City
Select the Month field
Click ORDER button
Change the order choose SPECIFIED ORDER.  You will then be asked to provide the order.
