Showing Month on Chart (3 letters versus full month name)

Hello, I have a chart (Line and clustered column chart), it displays the month names as their full name (i.e. January, February, etc.)  I would like to display the months as Jan, Feb, etc.  Is there a simple way to do this?  For the life of me, I can't figure it out and I feel I'm missing something very simple.  Thanks.

Try a calculated column like:

 

Mon = FORMAT([Date],"mmm")

Thank you!  I thought I tried that, but now that I went back and did it, I realized I had an forgotten an extra step.  This worked.

 

Again, thanks!
