    Gantt Chart of Tasks (2000)

    <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by kieran on 13-Aug-01 09:27.</FONT></P>Does anyone know if it is possible to create a view of the current/upcoming tasks in a gantt chart type view?

    Even being able to export it to Excel and chart it would be OK.


    ------- edited 13/8/01---------

    It appears that I may have been to brief in explaining the requirement.

    I am using Outlook 200 under NT4 with Exchange server.

    Many of my users have multiple tasks with differing end dates, categories etc. Outlook presents these tasks in a table type view.

    I have been asked if the default views could be massaged into a chart or calendar type view of the current and upcoming tasks to enable a quick visual summary of the scheduled work.

    Thanks in advance

    oops

    It appears that I did not look into Outlook well enough myself.

    If you use the Task Timeline view, Outlook gives me exactly what I required.

    Sorry if anyone has wasted time on this.

    The Task Timeline looks like a nice Gant-style chart. The problem is, I can't get any of my tasks to show in that view. How did you use it?

    Sorry I have moved jobs and now am trying to tame Lotus Notes (not succeeding very well) and no longer have access to Outlook.

    From memory all I did was have a series of tasks with various start, end dates. The application did the rest.

    Sorry I am not much help, hopefully someone else can pick up the thread from here and advise

    Thanks for the response. You were right on. I'm new to Outlook and didn't look for the obvious. My start and end dates were not all set up and once they were then the chart filled in nicely. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
