How do I show month names on a month sorted graph in Crystal 2008

After sifting through many of these posts I managed to create the graph I need. To do this I added my date to the chart expert in the advanced layout with my data and set the order for my date field to be by month. This works, but is there a different way I can get those numbers to display? Currently they just show up on my graph as

10    11     12     1     2     3
(the data is currently filtered to show 10/10 through 3/11)


If possible I would like this to be displayed as the mm/yyyy. Thanks for the assistance.. I couldn't seem to find the answer anywhere else for this but I apologize if it is a repeat. Also, I see label aliasing, but I don't believe that will work for this circumstance..

I wonder if maybe I can check the Use a Formula as Group Sort Order box and specify a formula that will sort chronilogically as well as display the mm/yyyy?

Thanks for the help!

Well an update to this question I have asked...

When in the designer, preview view, it shows the dates as just numbers as mentioned above. However, when I run the report live through the viewer, I am getting the Oct. 2010, Nov. 2010, etc.

Wish I knew why this was. Not necessarily a solution but since it is working in the viewer I'm not going to push the issue..

Can I request to open this back up? Although I have not changed anything in my report it is no longer showing the month names in the viewer when the report runs.. This program is very irritating..

Whenever I run the report in the viewer now it is back to the
10    11     12     1     2     3
appearance for the months.

Any thoughts?
