Scatter Plot Graph Help

I'm trying to create a Scatter-Plot Graph, and I'm having a devil of a time.

I need to plot data over time (X-axis). Some of the data-points overlap (are on the same date), but have different values (Y-axis). I absolutely cannot for the life of me, figure out how to use the Scatter-Plot tool, and the documentation is slim to almost non-existent.

I've created one Scatter-Plot Graph the old fashioned way: I just drew it.
The comma-delineated data is shown below the image:

5/2023, 8294400
10/2023, 2073600
1/2024, 3686400

I need to make dozens of these. I cannot draw each one this way. Any assistance on how to create this kind of graph using the graph tool is appreciated, thank you.

Not according to everyone else on the planet, including Google:

https://www.google.com/search?&q=scatter+plot+graph&tbm=isch
Or Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scatter_plot

Or literally anyone covering Scatter Plots:
https://chartio.com/learn/charts/what-is-a-scatter-plot/#visualization-tools

 

So Adobe has mislabeled a tool, that cannot do what it says?
