If you don't have access to Microsoft Project and you need a less
expensive program to create a Gantt chart, try TimeLine. It used to be
owned by Symantec and was bought by Corel. They bundle it with Corel

box, but it is on the CorelOffice CD. If you have used TimeLine before

is, but I suspect the price for Corel Office is a lot less than MS
