Hello,

I am trying to create a Access stack column graph based on a query that uses the horizontal axis to display the months.  However, the month won't display in sequence.  Running the query, shows that the month are displayed in order.  Below is the query. Owing to how the data is stored in the tables, I had to make use of aUnion query
SELECT DISTINCT 1 As SortOrder, Savings.Yr, MonthName(1, true) AS [Month], Sum(SavingAmounts.SourcingSavings_01) AS SourceSavings, Sum(SavingAmounts.CostAvoidance_01) AS CostAvoidance, Sum(Planning.Month_01) AS PlanningAmt, Sum([SourcingSavings_01]+[CostAvoidance_01]+[Month_01]) AS TotalAmt

GROUP BY Savings.Yr

UNION

the month are sorted correctly based on their names, Apr comes first

if you need to sort them in sequence, create another formatted date field,  i.e., Format(Datefield, "yyyy mm")  and use this field for your sorting

what is the content of the  [Month]  field, is this a DateTime field?
you have to use a Date Field not  [Month]

better if you can upload a copy of the db

Hello Rey,
I found the problem.  As you intimated, the month field was a text field, and not a date field. I used the cdate function to convert it and it is now displaying properly.  Below is the code.  I'll be getting rid of some of the fields that are no longer necessary.
