How can I make the months appear in alphabetical order without interfering with my chart legend in a stacked bar chart?

I want to preserve the logic, columns, and legend of the chart produced by my query but with months in chronological order rather than alphabetical. The solutions I found on here for correcting the month order seem to change the values used for my legend.

How can I make the months appear in alphabetical order without interfering with my chart legend?

|`init("xxx")`
| where strptime(info_date_reported,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N")>now() AND strptime(info_date_reported,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N")<=relative_time(now(), "+6mon")
| eval month=strftime(strptime(info_date_reported,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N"),"%b")
| table info_subType info_date_reported month
| chart count(info_subType) over month by info_subType

Try this - if it does nto work, then continue as below:

 |`init("xxx")`
 | where strptime(info_date_reported,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N")>now() 
    AND strptime(info_date_reported,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N")<=relative_time(now(), "+6mon")
 | eval month = relative_time(strptime(info_date_reported,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N"),"@mon")
 | fields month info_subType
 | fieldformat month=strftime(month,"%b")
 | chart count over month by info_subType

If the above does not work...

ISO date format is YYYY-MM-DD. This way it is unambiguous, and can be sorted and compared directly without conversion.

If you really need the month written out, and if fieldformat does not work for chart then put the numeric year and month on the front of the formatted date first, like this:

2) | eval month=strftime(strptime(info_date_reported,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N"),""%Y-%m %b")
