    Question stacked bar chart with dates?

    Hi all,

    Thanks for creating this excellent resource.

    I am trying to create a stacked bar chart that shows multiple stages of 5-10 different projects over the course of the next year. My attempts to do so have fallen short! Specifically:

    * Each bar (horizontal) should represent a project.
    * Each bar should have multiple segments, each of which represents a stage in the project (stage 1, stage 2, stage 3, etc.).
    * The data for each segment should be a range of dates.

    Any suggestions, templates, examples would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.

    What you describe sounds like a variation on a Gantt chart. I would start by creating a basic Gantt chart (help file here: https://support.office.com/en-us/art...rs=en-US&ad=US ), which is basically a variation on a stacked bar chart, then add the additional data series to represent each stage of your projects.
