With the current query it orders the months alphabeticaly. How do I make it order correctly?

  DATENAME(mm,FilteredNew_application.new_effectivestartdate) as Month
  ,sum(FilteredNew_application.new_gp) as GP
  ,sum(FilteredNew_application.new_approvalamount) as Approval
  ,sum(FilteredNew_application.new_equiptmentcost) as Revenue
  FilteredNew_application.new_primaryvendoridname LIKE N'Dell%'
  AND FilteredNew_application.new_applicationstatusname = N'Vendors Paid'
AND FilteredNew_application.new_effectivestartdate >= N'02/01/2010 00:00:00'

Change the group by and order by. This won't affect your grouping.

Group by DateName(mm, ..date..), Month(..date..)
Order by Month(..date..)
