SSRS 2008 Line chart help

This seems like a very simple report that I am trying to deploy. It is essentially a rolling 12-month sales report across departments and users.  I have attached a screenshot from excel showing what I am trying to accomplish. My sql query returns the table data shown in the grid. I just can't figure out how to display it as a line chart in SSRS. (One click via Excel, so I have to assume this is something I am just missing).
Thanks! screenshot

The 2005 tutorial doesn't seem to help me out with the 2008 environment. I was familiar with 2005, but not 2008.. and I can't seem to figure this out.

Here's another link to help you out: http://www.simple-talk.com/sql/reporting-services/get-started-with-chart-development-in-reporting-services-2008/

The article above creates a chart more or less like what you're looking for: timeline on the X-axis, amounts on the Y-axis, and several series into one chart.  The only difference is that it's a bar chart instead of line, but that's just a couple of clicks to switch between them.

As an extra: for some additional chart optimization tips, I can recommend the following article: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS-SQL-Server/MS-SQL_Reporting/A_1644-Chart-Optimization-Tips.html
