Bar Chart cannot sort in original order?

Horizontal bar chart is a little bit odd, because it has X and Y axes reversed. 

Now I have four horizontal bars need to display: 
  • 3 and 4 years old
  • 5 and 6 years old
  • 7 to 13 years old
  • 14 to 17 years old
When the four bars are put on the axis, they are sorted into:
  • 14 to 17 years old
  • 3 and 4 years old
  • 5 and 6 years old
  • 7 to 13 years old
Apparently it is because "1" is sorted ahead of other numbers.

There is "Indexed" may put the categories in original order, but it only works on X axis, but in bar chart the category is on Y axis. So it does not work for bar chart.

Is there anyway I can show the bars in the original order of the points of the bar series?

OK. I just fixed this with "Customizing Label Text".
