Shorter responds: If you don't mind doing a little work you can build
one from scratch. See the "Project Manager, Part I/II" articles by
Everette S. Gardner Jr. in Lotus Magazine - January and February, 1988.
The Baarns catalog features a Gantt chart Excel template which looks
suspiciously close to the Lotus Magazine screen shot. Baarns wants
$34.95 plus tax, shipping and handling. I'm not saying that is
overpriced. For my money, though, I'd rather develop it myself. YMMV

BTW We haven't heard from Paula since Monday on this topic. She might
have developed a solution by now. Other alternatives include CA-Super
Project from Computer Associates (overkill?) or Timelines from Corel
(previously from Symantec).
