How to visually represent the start and end dates of projects in a chart

In an Access 2003 database I have a number of projects being run. Each project has a start date and an end date. The end date will often change and users need to be able to look at a chart and see how many projects are running at any one time, how many project starts there are in any given month and how many project ends.

What I need is a chart with projects listed in rows on the left and months of the year as columns. The projects should be represented as lines passing through the months. So, it the chart is displaying January to December, a project starting mid-February and ending in October should show up as a line starting and finishing in those months.

Can anyone suggest how to approach this?

Take a look at the Crew Rotation Schedule in Calendar.Zip at http://www.invisibleinc.com/download.cfm?filFilID=6 (Click on the two file folders icon  in the top left corner under the word download.)  I think that is exactly what you are looking for.
