    Stacked Bar Chart with horizontal axis as dates

    I'm using Excel Mac 2011.

    I created a stacked bar chart as a Gantt chart. The vertical (category) axis is 20 Tasks entered as text. The horizontal (value) axis values are the dates spread over 2.5 years. They are in date format in the spreadsheet.

    On the chart I want the horizontal axis scale to be Dates with an indication at the start of each month, i.e. J, F, M, etc. When I go to Format Axis, the horizontal axis scale is Auto (numbers) and I canít change it to Dates.

    As a work around I selected Major unit as 30 and formatted Number as Date > "M". The "months" are not spaced properly since months do not have same number of days. You will see J J M A M M etc.

    I saw a similar posting on another forum but there was no fix.

    Thanks for your help

    This tutorial talks about how to do that: http://peltiertech.com/Excel/Charts/GanttChart.html Basically, you create a combination stacked bar + line chart. The stacked bar creates the gantt chart, and the line chart provides the nice horizontal date axis.
