I have the following columns and data; how do I create a multi line graph so that each line is for each category.

Column A       Column B

2013-06-08    blue
2013-06-09    red
2013-06-09    blue
2013-06-10    green
...


I want a line graph to see a trend over time.  What I think is making it difficult here is that there are duplicate dates and items in column B.   If you think it would be better, I can run a query so that Column B values are all the same.
