Crystal reports: text edit on the chart

I have a report that lists months starting from July when a user selects to view the report in any given fiscal year. In order for me to achieve this, I had to create a formula - thanks to a tip from a master here - and use the formula in the group section.

Now when I go to create a chart based on the data on the report, the chart is showing numbers that I had to use when creating the month formula, like "01-July". The number was used in order for me to modify the order of months appearing on the report.

Is there a way to suppress the number shown on the chart like it is supposed on the report?

    Hi Kenshin,

    1. Insert a Crosstab.

    2. Use the Month formula as the Row and the measure field as the "Summarized Field".

    3. Highlight the Month formula in the crosstab's row > Group Options > Options tab > Check "Customize Group Name Field" > Click "Use a formula Group Name" and press the formula button beside it.

    4. Use this code in the formula:

    Mid({@Formula_Name}, 3)

    5. Save and close the formula and click OK.

    6. Right-click the Crosstab > Select Insert Chart > Choose the Chart Type you need.

    7. Suppress the section that holds the Crosstab.
