SQL Reporting Services - Graph

I have a graph which displays data for the last year, however, as I return so many days worth of data, the bottom of the graph looks corrupt.

How can I get RS to decrease the frequency at which it prints the date?

You could define an expression which only displays every other label.  For example, if you edit the group in the Chart Properties data tab, you can put this expression into the label field:
=iif(RowNumber(Nothing) Mod 2, Fields!Date.Value,"").

You could also make the font a little smaller.  On the X Axis tab, click the style properties icon next to Format Code - you can edit font size there.

It's looking better, but my issue is that if the user selects a larger date range [e.g. 36 months]?

How can i force only 12 dates from the date range to print, using a similar expression?
Here's all I can come up with right now:
use nested IFs in the label statement which will depend on the date range.  something like:

=IIF(DateDiff("m",max(Fields!date.Value, "Dataset"),min(Fields!date.Value, "Dataset")) >= 36,(iif(RowNumber(Nothing) Mod 3,Fields!date.Value, " ")), IIF(DateDiff("m",max(Fields!date.Value, "Dataset"),min(Fields!date.Value, "Dataset")) >= 24,(iif(RowNumber(Nothing) Mod 2,Fields!date.Value, " ")),Fields!date.Value) )
Question has a verified solution.
