Hopefully somebody has tried this and succeeded. I'm trying to develop a form useful for planning in MS Access 2000. Hopefully this could be used in situations where someone has 10 machine and 20 products and they can plan which machine will create which product and for how long in a week. The gannt chart would instantly give a clear view.

What I would like to do is have a gantt chart onscreen listing the days of the week in question eg week 42 of the year. So gantt chart would be mon,tue,wed,thur,fri,sat,sun

Is it feasible in ms access firstly have a dynamic gantt chart onscreen? I have searched and searched but have found no answer to this.

What I need is to be able to add, edit and delete planning data using this chart too. What I mean is that in order to edit or delete data, the user could just list on the item in the list and work from there.If adding, the user could click on space on the chart and then enter a product, a machine to run it on, starting time and date and the duration in hours.

The gantt chart should refresh with this data once the user has saved it.

Surely there must be some way of achieving a solution close to this in access. For the moment however, I cant seem to find one. Any ideas?
