Charting against a timeline.

Ok - Hope I phrase this in a way which is understandable (am new-ish to Crystal Reports)

Version is 8.5

Have some data which contains sales opportunites with a variety of different dates -

Phase1 Start
Phase1 Finish
Phase2 Start
Phase2 Finish

I want to produce a chart which shows along one axis the name of the sales opportunity, then along the other axis a timeline - actual graph should then show various dates along timeline for each phase of an opportunity - A litle like a Gantt chart?

I am having real problems creating any chart against a timeline - keep getting a count of dates instead of the actual dates.

If this is not possible in a chart can I do it with a Cross-Tab Rpt? Still get this problem working with multiple date fields along one timeline..

Ideas anyone??

Any help would be gratefully appreciated

mlmcc - None of these links contain reports that offer an example like the one I am after - Really need to be plotting multiple date fields on one axis. Am going to try creating a formula field which takes date1 or date 2 or date 3 etc... then using this on one axis - Do you think this will work?
