Using Excel to document steps

Greetings!

I need to document about 350 steps in a systems build process which have branching and merging paths and various dependencies I want to represent. I am looking to have one tab with all the data listed in a table, then be able to pivot and provide constrained views on successive tabs.

Do you happen to have an example of a spreadsheet/table with brancing, merging and dependencies represented?

Thank you!

I would recommend MS Project or similar software to do this task.
And MS Project isn't the only option. You may look at RationalPlan (http://www.rationalplan.com/)

Also free software exists, e.g. OpenProject: https://www.openproject.org/

Hi, don't have anything like that and don't recommend Excel for it. You should use Visio which does what you are requesting.

Yes, pcelba is right, MS Project would be another solution, and with more charting and display options.
