SSRS Bar Chart not sorting as expected

blossompark used Ask the Experts™
I have a Bar Chart in SSRS but I cannot get the Y axis items(Name values) to sort alphabetically.
Below is my Bar Chart in Design Mode
sort issueThe Query that creates the Dataset is sorted  by name and returns the sort order as expected.
I have also set the [name] value to sort A-Z in the Category Groups  Properties.

However, when the report runs, the Names are not sorting  as expected.
Any guidance appreciated.
