• I am getting numbers rather than bars when I am printing, what can I do?

Printing issues can be found with older mono printers and printer drivers.  If Excel is not printing what you see on the screen, then this is an issue with your printer driver not adequately rendering the conditional formatting used to create the bars.

Some options and work-arounds if you are experiencing this issue:

  • Print to another printer 
  • Update your printer driver
  • Copy the portion of your gantt chart you wish to print and paste it as an image in either Word or Powerpoint
  • Use the new save as PDF functionality in Excel 2007 or later.  Then print the PDF.
