    time line charts (XP)

    My boss wants a time line or time scale chart for the attached worksheet. I know Excel, but I don't have a clue how to go about creating a chart from the data and I can't seem to find a lot about it in help. Could someone please give me some help or better still create the chart.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Can you give some indication of what the chart should look like?

    By the way, I suspect that the data in the worksheet are incorrect - all dates are in 2006, but that means that some dates are out of sequence. If you want a correct chart, you need correct data first.

    Gosh, I wish I could. These are training dates for the different locations. Could we use a 2-D stacked bar chart. I did some checking from previous questions and they used the above chart. Thanks sooo much.

    Does the attached come close? I removed the blank rows, corrected (?) the dates and added an auxiliary column.
    The chart is a stacked bar chart with the first series made transparent by setting border and fill to none.
