vb.net - Dundas Chart - How to replace Month number by month name on AxisX

In the query used to construct my chart, I'm getting one column with month and one with qty.
Month column is in numeric way.
I need to display month in name.

So question : is it possible to chang it in my AccessSQL query (if yes, I still want them to be sorted from january to december).
Other option, change it on the AxisX Label but I don't even know if it's possible.

Thx in advance for help

Do you bind your chart to data via dataSource?
You can add points manually as strings or date
Approach 1 (strings)
For each r As DataRow in YourTable.Rows
    Dim mName = System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.DateTimeFormat.GetMonthName(dr("monthField")
    Chart1.Series("Quantity").Points.AddXY(mName, dr("qtyField"))    

Open in new window

Approach 2 (dates)
Chart1.Series("Quantity").XValueType = ChartValueTypes.DateTime 
Chart1.ChartAreas("Default").AxisX.LabelStyle.Format="MMMM" 'for full month name or = "MMM" for abbr
For each r As DataRow in YourTable.Rows
    Dim dt=New Date(2015,dr("monthField"),1)
    Chart1.Series("Quantity").Points.AddXY(dt, dr("qtyField"))
