    Ordering inside PRD is (if I remember correctly) not possible.
    Order the results in the SQL-Statement

    Dont use a categorical chart. Remember Statistics 101? Categorical scales have no order, they only allow comparison on equal or non-equal basis.

    If you want a specific order, use an ordinal scale, and thus the X/Y charts. For instance, use proper dates as value for the x-axis, use the unit "month" and then format it with format string "MMM".

    Hi Taqua,

    I try with Time-series now, but how to set the year as the series so each year will have its own line? Please advise.
