[Download] Free Excel Gantt Chart

Lisez cet article en Français

Through this article, I wanted to share with you a Gantt chart I developed on Microsoft Excel. There are multiple reasons why I wanted to do so :

  1. Why should we pay a MS Pr**** licence and use only few functions of it
  2. Excel files are becoming standard in the industry and your window person will for sure not struggle opening an Excel file
  3. I like Excel ! It’s much more user-friendly than other software programs
  4. And maybe most motivating reason : I didn’t find a free Gantt chart I really liked on the web !

Just before I share with you link to the file, hereafter some customer expectations I considered :

  1. Free from Visual Basic macros : main reason is to make people downloading this file confident that there are no viruses or spyware.
  2. Easy to use / user-friendly : including the way you add & remove tasks or sub-tasks
  3. Accurate : the chart should reflect user intention/input
  4. Free download !

    Hi, I don`t get to change the working days for only 5 day…. It always stay with the 7 days week. What is wrong?

    • Anass Am. dit :

      Hi Leonardo,

      Which Excel version are you using ? Excel 2007, 2010, 2003?


      • Leonardo Massarelli dit :

        Hi, I`m using Excell for MAC 2011…. The options for working day doesn`t work.

    • Anass Am. dit :

      Thank Leo for your feedback. I must apologies, I did not try this chart in Mac plateform during my error-proof trials.

      At a first glance, I can say there is a difference on how Windows & Mac handle dates : Windows reference date is 1/1/1900 and Mac is 1/1/1904.

      It is reported on the net that the formula « WORKDAYS » is impacted by this difference (see: http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.mac.office.excel/browse_thread/thread/7f5b4222cc3a263c).

      1) I would need to get hold of a mac to make some trials and fix the bug. If the bug is consistent, a simple tweak on the formula would solve it. Best case, I will find a formula that fits both Win & Mac. However, getting a mac may take me some time and therefore I can’t promise quick fix.

      2) As a quick fix, may I suggest you to change the date system to the 1900 system (Go to Preferences/Calculation, uncheck the 1904 date system checkbox). Please let me know if it worked and if you have any side effects. In parallel I will work on item #1.

      Apologies again for all fans of Mac :)


  2. Leonardo Massarelli dit :

    If I uncheck this what is the possible problems in my mac?? Do you know ?

  3. Zvezdoros dit :

    My first post! :)

  4. Leonardo Massarelli dit :

    Hi, I changed my 1900 system for mac and din`t get any difference. Do you have any other way to try?

    • Anass Am. dit :

      Hello Leonardo,

      I need to have a look at it with mac. As soon as I have a reply, I will post it.

      Apologies did not check that major plateform during the error-proof.


  5. Tom dit :

    Sorry, but I downloaded the « latest version » from the link above, and it turned out to be in French, not English. I could work with that, but I am not so sure about my colleagues.

  6. anu dit :

    I think there is an option to choose English! I was able to choose, however, there are no bar graphs appearing on my Gantt chart and so am a bit disappointed, is it because I am using Excel 2010, please help!

  7. mirikwrites dit :

    Hi, just wondering if you have fixed the 5 day workday issue? I’ve tried unchecking the 1904 date system option but didn’t make any difference. Cheers, Miri.

  8. Frazer dit :
