I'm not seeing it.  Perhaps it is because I am using the latest version of MS Project 2010.

Would this be acceptable, it's one of the built in formats, at least on my system.

I also see this as one of the built-in formats, not exactly what you were after, but fairly close?

This was following the instructions from the first post here...

Yes, that would work.  I'm still unclear how to set it in my file though. I'd be grateful for the assist.
