Excel 2007 :: Gantt Or Stacked Bar Chart Timeline

Mar 19, 2012

I'm attempting to chart data obtained from our phone system to see when users are logged in/on rest.

I'm using Excel 2007.

The data we extract has:
person | status | start | finish | duration

Status is either "login" or "rest"
Start/finish is time (h:mm)
Duration is a formula (h:mm, finish - start)

I want to have a stacked bar chart that shows when a person was logged in/on rest; one bar for each person.

x-axis: person
y-axis: time (8am - 6pm)
legend: status

The problem I'm encountering is that each person logs in and out multiple times throughout the day (therefore, has multiple lines to their name in the data), and I can't get this information to appear on a single bar for each person.

I've sorted the data into a pivot table which gives me the information I want, but how to get the chart.

Row labels
a. Person
b. status
c. start

Values
Min of duration

Ideally, I would like to avoid using a Gantt chart within cells (as it would involve vlookup/if statements), but am beginning to think that's my only option...

Create Gantt Or Timeline Chart

Jul 1, 2008

I tried so long I finally gave up and drew this by hand in MS Word:

But I wonder if you guys could help me chart this automatical in Excel.

I want to chart the time period a ship (Vela, Serpentine, Rainbow etc) are contracted. I want a specific color for the firm contract, and another for the remaining optional contract. If a ship is under construction I also want a bar showing when it's done.

Each ship has a rate. I want this written on the bar. In "Vela's" case there are to rates for the same contract: The first 740 days the rate is 24,5 the rest of the period it is 29. I also would like to be able plot an additional contract for the same ship for example after "Syrena" is done in yr 2009.

Excel 2007 :: Dates By Month On X-Axis In Horizontal Stacked Bar Chart?

Aug 24, 2012

I am working with the Ganntt chart and horizontal bar charts but can't seem to figure out a way to force the X-Axis to behave properly.

In Excel 2007, I am trying to get the X-Axis to show major units of Months. However, in my chart options I can only change the Y-Axis to be Date/Monthly.

Changing my data layout (from the below) to be a vertical format produces the same problem, just in the other direction.

My data looks as follows:

System
Blocker
Production
Migrataion
Retired

Sys1
1/1/2012
780

Sys2
1/1/2012
400
60
90

Sys3
2/1/2013
30
5
1

The Blocker column is formatted as "No Fill" in order to cover a portion of the time-scale.

My X-Axis displays as random dates throughout the period and all of my data displays properly in terms of the scale on the grid.

What is NOT working is that the dates shown on the X-Axis really need to be based on a Monthly scale instead of the randomly selected dates Excel is using.

20120823.xlsx

I can't seem to find the right combination of options to make that happen or force a scale on the X-Axis.

Exasperated With 2007 Stacked Bar Chart

Jul 8, 2009

I need to create a chart showing a timeline from 0 hours to 100 hours. In this timeline, there has to be 8 seperate segments - ie, phase 1, phase 2, phase 3, phase 4, phase 5, phase 6, phase 7, phase 8. Each phase takes a certain amount of hours (the number of hours of each phase is irrelevant for now!).

how to format this data and then how to display such a chart? I need the timeline along the X axis.

Stacked Column Chart Totals 2007

Jun 28, 2008

Would like to add totals to stacked column chart in Excel 2007.

I have followed same steps listed here [url] but cannot position data labels above column.

Excel only gives me the options Center, Inside End, and Inside Base.

I also tried setting label position with VBA:

For Each co In ChartObjects
For Each s In co.Chart.SeriesCollection
If s. Name = "Totals" Then
For Each dl In s.DataLabels
dl.Position = xlLabelPositionOutsideEnd
Next dl
End If
Next s
Next co

Also tried the following without luck:

dl.Position = xlLabelPositionAbove

For each VBA example I get following error:
Run-time error '-2147467259 (80004005)':
Automation error
Unspecified error

It seems like Microsoft has removed this positioning option for stacked column charts because it works fine for normal column charts. Anyone find a way to do this otherwise?

Excel Chart To Show Timeline?

Nov 23, 2011

I have a spreadsheet where users can enter a time using the 24 hour clock - these times are random and can be anything within the 24 hour period.

I want to create a chart or graph that has a timeline of 24 hours, (in multiples of 1 hour starting at 07:00 and going right through to 06:00), and I need the times entered by the users to appear on the chart to give an overview of when these incidents are happening most.

I was thinking that the cluster or scatter chart might work but I can't figure it out. I don't actually need both X and Y Axis, just a timeline - is it possible?

How to use conditional formatting in Excel 2007 (). I'm creating a spreadsheet to track my group's timeline for completing strategy meetings with our customers.

Excel 2007 :: Waterfall Charts - Stacked Bars Running From Left To Right

Jan 27, 2012

Using Excel 2007. Is there a straightforward way to do a waterfall chart?

eg. stacked bars running from left to right.
First Column = 2011 Headcount
2nd Column = stacked bar with additions (by category) - stepping up from the 2011 total.
3rd Column = stacked bar with reductions (by category) - steppind down from the first column + 2nd colum total.
4th column = 2011 exit (which will be at the same height as the bottom of the 3rd column).

Excel 2010 :: Combining 100% Stacked Column With 100% Stacked Line Using 2 Groups Of Data?

Apr 24, 2014

I am trying to create a 100% stacked column which has a superimposed line chart over the top of it.

Basically % of yes and no for two separate datasets, but which share the same characteristics. The x-axis is months of the year.

CSP Yes
CSPNo
All Yes
All No

Apr-13
6
19

[code]....

I can create 2 separate charts. One for the yes/no of one set as a 100% stacked column. I then use 'no fill' on the No column to stop this from being seen.

I can create a 100% line chart for the second data type, and 'no fill' the 100% line that appears.

However, I can't merge the two charts to show the Yes % for one dataset as bars and the Yes % of the other as a line.

I am using Excel 2010 on XP.

Overlay Line Chart On Top Of Stacked Column Chart?

Feb 15, 2012

I am trying to overlay a line chart on top of a stacked column chart. The stacked column chart is a chart where the x axis is dates and the y axis is amount. The line chart is a projected amount that I will reach in few years; the x axis is the date while the y axis is an amount. I can get a chart that has a line and stacked columns, but ever time, the dates get messed up. The line has an extremely wide date range while the columns only have about a month of data.

Automate Gantt Chart Creation

Nov 7, 2006

I am trying to find a way to automate this crude gant chart. What I am trying to do is the following:

1: By entering a start date and due date, and by adding a percentage to 4 different goals, create a sort of gant chart for each job.

2: Have this chart update as the start and due dates change.

3: Be able to past other gant charts below this one, based on the leader assigned to each job. ie. if Dave is a leader, create a worksheet that will have all of dave's Gant charts in one workbook, on one worksheet, pasted each one below the next. The goal being we can give each leader 1 sheet that has all their jobs.

Automatically Setting X Axis Value For Gantt Chart?

Sep 26, 2013

I have created a pseudo Gantt chart in Excel (a horizontal stacked bar chart). The chart is driven off data I have in a Power Pivot model (Auto Refreshed) and the Gantt chart displays data which spans a fixed 12 hour time frame.

The problem I am having is that in order for me to get the chart to display correctly I must manually (daily) get the excel decimal values for my Minimum DateTime and Maximum DateTime and then enter those numbers into the "AXIS Options" Bounds Minimum and Maximum value fields. I would like to automate that process so that the Axis Bounds are either driven from the data cells OR are always set to a specific 12 hour window 6pm->6am daily.

Automatic Gantt Chart Format Formula

Sep 16, 2008

I am looking to create a spreadheet that will automatically shade blocks in a gannt chart according to a list of dates.

I.e B13 & B14 will have the start and end date of the particular task or activity (this will be on another sheet)

Row A3 - S3 will contain dates, iusing a lookup formulas excel will look up the activity name (or number) and look for the relevant date, if the date listed in row 3 is within or equal to that date it will return yes, if not a no.

this seemed straightforad, but I cant think of a consistent formula that will do this, without having to keep changing it ...

Employee Scheduling Program Gantt Chart

Feb 14, 2007

I'm trying to create an Employee Scheduler. I want my employees (1 technician per row for a total of 10 rows) in the 1st column then the monthly calendar to the right (1 cell/day). That is what you'll see when you open the worksheet. Then, down below I set up my Data Area where I input my project, start date, end date, technician (where each tech is assigned a unique number), and other data across a row of cells. This could be infinite (or at least up to the very last row).

I modified a free Project Scheduler I got from XL-EasyGantt to become my Employee Scheduler but am having some difficulties getting it to do what I want. The project Scheduler basically works by entering (on the same row) the project (or task), the start date and finish date and then the cells get automatically filled in across those dates. This allows for overlapping of tasks but I want to create an Employee Scheduler so it doesn't allow overlapping or schedule a technician to start a new project before he/she has completed the one their on.

The main function which is in each cell of the monthly calendar is as follows: =IF(OR(AND($G28>=K$4,$G28<L$4),AND($M28>=K$4,K$4>=$G28)),IF(AND($E11="x",$M28>=K$4,$M28<L$4),"x",IF($E11=".",".","..")),"")

My problem: I want to be able to look at the Main Schedule and see when each Technician is scheduled for a job (or multiple jobs) for any given month. I want the function to look in my Data Area and assign the start date and end date of a project and the corresponding technician number and fill in the date cells across from their name in the Schedule above.

Gantt-type Chart With Quarterly Marks On The Date Axis?

May 22, 2014

I'm using a stacked bar chart (in Excel 2010, running on Windows 7) to create a simple Gantt-type chart - with just four or five bars. I've got my chart looking most of the way I want it to, but one thing still eludes me: I'd like to set up the major axis ticks to be quarters of the year (from 1/1/2011 to 4/1/2013). Since quarters are not regular intervals (they are not exactly every 90 days), I can't do this using Excel's standard functionality for choosing axis tick marks.

Gantt Chart - Changing Cell Color Based On % Completed

Aug 12, 2014

I'm trying to create a simplified Gantt chart of sorts, and cannot figure out one piece of it. I'm not sure how to write out exactly what I need, but here goes.

I would like to have a formula that looks at the percent completed (which the user inputs) and multiplies it by the total duration for the task to give a total number of days completed. Then, under the corresponding dates, the color of the cell would change. I've attached a simplified version of what I'm talking about.

On the attached spreadsheet, the total duration (D2) is 5 days and the percent completed (C2) is 40%. This calculates to 2 days. With that said, I would like the cells under the first 2 days under the listed dates (E2 and F2) to change color. When the percentage complete reaches 60%, then G2 would change color, when it reaches 80%, then H2 would change, and when it reaches 100%, then I2 would change.

My guess is that the formula will need to result in a particular value, and then I'll use Conditional Formatting to do the actual changing of the cell color. Assuming this is correct, I still don't know what formula to use to accomplish this.

How To Turn Bar Chart Into Stacked Chart

Feb 14, 2014

I have a two bar chart (red and blue) I'm trying to turn into a stacked chart. It has total cars and broken cars. There are a 100 total cars (10 broken). But when I stack them, it shows 110 total cars (it's adding instead of merging them). Once stacked, there should still be 100 total cars....but the tip of it should be red to show what amount is broken. It's adding the two together but it shouldn't....the number of broken cars is still part of the total.

Stacked Bar Chart

May 22, 2006

I am trying to define a chart of TWO Stacked Bars. (it will be a little difficult for me, with my bad English, to explain but I'm sure you will understand. My target is a chart as shown in the embedded picture. Take a look at sheet1:

This is a 75% completed chart. I managed to present the first 2 stacked bars. (light & dark green). Then I added a blank column ("D") and declared it as a "bar" on the 2nd. Y Axis. (This "D" series has now two values, of 5, which must be "Zeroed" when the chart is finished).

I managed to add the first part of the 2nd. Stacked bars. (Orange) I played a little with the Width and Overlap and got the result shown in Sheet1. (When The "two fives" will change into 0 - the two orange bars will start from the X-Axis (Zero "Y" level)/ So far so good.

What I need now is to add the last Series (F2:F9) to be put ON TOP of the Orange Bar but without success. If you'll take a look at Sheet2 you will see what I came up with. I DO NOT want them to be inside each other. I want them as in the embedded picture (side by side). In addition I would love to present the Labels: Newspaper, Internet, Relevant, Non-Relv. Inside the chart (if possible)
