MS Chart Control line interpolation failure?

Hi Experts!

I have an ASP 4.0 app with some chart controls showing data from a SQL server.
There are all XY graphs with charttype = line (or fastline). For some, to me, unknown reason the lines fail to connect some of the data points and overlap (see attached picture).

I suspect that there is something wrong with the internal interpolation routine in the Chart Control object, maybe I'm wrong?
Does anyone here know of a solution to get rid of this I would be more than happy?

BR,
Peer

Are the datapoints sorted correctly ?  (This looks like the jumps could be between datapoints in the order they are in the dataset)

Hi,
All datapoints are inserted into the DB in real-time, i.e. they should be sorted w.r.t. time.
I will make sure however if that's the case.
Thanks!

Just because they are sorted in the table doesn't mean they will be sorted in the dataset (they could be but...)

You were right, the data was not sorted (WHY?). The data is added at real-time in a time interval to a table with id so I assumed (wrongly) that the data should be sorted as it it's been added.

Thanks!
