Here is what I heard from our product division people:
Unfortunately, there is currently no way to do BY NOPRINT in Charts. This is planned to be supported in the future as there is a New Feature Request already submitted.
To make some kind of workaround, we need to know which Date format you are using and if there is any way to create a Define field that would have correct year attached to it so that Chart will be plotted in chronological order.
Hope this helps.

The fact that you cannot use noprint in graphs has been driving me crazy for a long time. eg Jan - Dec will not display in the proper order.
You can work around it by hard coding the values. For example, with ACROSS you can use this...
ACROSS MYCOL NOPRINT COLUMNS JAN and FEB and MAR and APR and MAY and JUN etc etc
Will work. This assumes that the actual values for the across do not change. If they are dynamic then start by sticking all of the possible values into ampers and then build the string dynamically in a loop. We do this all the time. You end up with this
I got into this discussion late but here is a way to create a dynamic sort order. As usual it uses the CAR file. The example creates a graph to show CARS in a graph sorted low to high based on SALES.
-SET &ECHO=ALL; APP FI SORTORDR DISK SORTORDR.FEX -RUN TABLE FILE CAR SUM SALES BY TOTAL SALES NOPRINT BY COUNTRY BY CAR ON TABLE SET HOLDLIST PRINTONLY ON TABLE HOLD AS THEDATA END -RUN DEFINE FILE THEDATA SORTWORD/A8= IF (LAST SORTWORD NE 'COLUMNS' OR 'AND') THEN 'COLUMNS' ELSE 'AND'; SORTVALU/A30='''' | CAR || ''''; END TABLE FILE THEDATA PRINT SORTWORD SORTVALU ON TABLE SAVE AS SORTORDR END -RUN GRAPH FILE THEDATA SUM SALES ACROSS CAR -INCLUDE SORTORDR END
