    You'll need to be more specific regarding what you're trying to do. You say you tried it in Excel - and that wasn't working - and Microsoft Project is too complicated?

    You can always make one graphically in Power Point. I do that all the time for a Tier 1 summary view.

    Hi and thanks...
    I need to insert a Gantt chart into my word document as part of an assigment...
    The gantt chart needs to be pretty simple ...
    9 vertical rows showing tasks expressed alphabetically A through to I and
    22 horizontal columns respresnted as 1 month each with in the chart the cost flow needs to be shown ...That is at the XY axis of the corresponding month and task
    at the bottom of the chart the cumulative totals nbeed to be shown....
    I can draw it by hand but tht look pretty crappy ......
    No other data needs to be supplied...

    For that you should be able to us Excel.
    1) Setup your X-axis months
    2) Use the Border and Fill Color tools to construct/outline your task bars
    3) Insert Text as needed to complete
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Well project makes that a snap. If you don't like that - you can do it manually in Excel as RazorMac has suggested YouTube - Gantt Chart Tutorial Excel 2007-Mac - or give this a try - it looks pretty straightforward and is free.

    Interesting link on the tutorial. Though, I think if you have Project it would be easier than using his method. I have to admit it is neat in a geeky kind of way.

    To be honest - I didn't watch it - I just took a quick googley look to see if there was any free project SW for the Mac - and it was in the search result. There are Excel gantt templates you can download - now that I think of it. In fact - I have one at work - that I never used - but it was pretty well done and might be perfect in this case. A search for gantt excel template will give him what he needs - most likely.

    Currently 13" Late 2010 MBA, 4GB/128GB; Early 2011 13" MBP, dual core i7 2.7ghz, 4gb ram, 500gb hd
    You may want to print from Excel and save as a PDF, then insert the pdf into your Word doc. Also, you may want to download and try OmniGraffle. It does a pretty good job for building charts like Visio, and you should be able to save it right into a Word doc.

    Just paste it in as a picture - use 'paste special'.

    I personally would use FastTrack Schedule. It does Gantt charts beautifully.
