To the right of the Series values field you will see an icon which looks like a spreadsheet with a red arrow on it. Click on it the one by Series values and Excel will open a smaller Edit Series window. Now simply click the first start date in your task table and drag your mouse down to the last start date.
This highlights all of the start dates for your tasks and inputs them into your Gantt chart. Make sure you have not mistakenly highlighted the header or any extra cells. When finished, click on the small spreadsheet icon again the one with the red arrow which will return you to the previous window called Edit Series. Your Gantt should now look like this:. Here we will add the duration data to your Gantt chart.
In the Edit Series window, click in the empty field under the title Series Name , then click in your Task table again, on the column header that reads Duration. Staying in the Edit Series window move down to Series value and click on spreadsheet icon with a red arrow on it again.
Select your Duration data by clicking on the first Duration in your project table and drag your mouse down to the last duration so all durations are now highlighted.

Your chart should now look something like this:. You have really built a Stacked bar chart. Now we need to format it so it looks like a Gantt chart. To do that, we must make the blue parts of each task bar transparent so only the orange parts will be visible. These will become the tasks of your Gantt chart. To select all of the tasks bars at once, click on the blue part of any bar in your Gantt chart, then right-click and select Format Data Series , which will bring up the Format Data Series window in Excel.
Don't close the Format Data Series task pane because we're going to use it in the next step. You probably also see that the tasks on your Gantt chart are listed in reverse order with the last task on top of the Gantt chart and the first Task listed at the bottom. This is easy to change in Excel. To do so click on the list of tasks along the vertical axis of your Gantt chart. This will select them all and it will also open the Format Axis task pane.
In the Format Axis task pane under the header Axis Options and the sub-header Axis Position put a check into the checkbox called Categories in reverse order. You will notice that Excel arranged your tasks into proper order, listing them from first to last on your Gantt chart.
You will also notice that Excel moved the date markers from beneath to the top of the Gantt chart. Now it is really starting to look more like a Gantt chart should. Removing some of the blank white space where the blue bars used to be will bring your tasks a little closer to the vertical axis of your Gantt chart.
To remove some of the blank white space in the chart, click on the dates above the task bars. One click should select all the dates, then right click and select Format Axis to bring up Excel's Axis Options window.
In the Axis Options window, under the header called Bounds, note the current number for Minimum Bounds.
It represents the left most boundary of your Gantt chart. Changing this number by making it larger will bring your tasks closer to the vertical axis of your Gantt chart.
In my case I changed the original number which was At any time you can hit the reset button to return the original settings. This gives you the opportunity to try a number of different settings until you find the one the makes your Gantt chart look best. In the same Axis Options window under the header Units, you can adjustment the spacing between each of the dates listed at the top of the horizontal Axis.
If you increase the unit number your Gantt chart will enlarge the space between each date, which will also lessen the number of dates your Gantt chart shows. Doing the opposite, reduces the space between each date and therefore crowds more dates onto your Gantt chart.
In my case I changed the original number from 20 to Under the Series Options header you will find the Gap Width control.
