I'm new to this so please forgive me if I've done this wrong or missed 
something. I download the Gant chart template, which I think is great, however 
so I can use and print on my works machine I need to transfer it to the Excel 
spreadsheet. Most or it goes over however the day markers that highlight how 
many days it takes, doesn't seem to convert across and instead of getting the 
required grapics on the spreadsheet, it's a load of squiggles and @ signs.

Is this a common problem or have I missed something? can anyone tell me how to 
sort this please. My works computer runs Excel 2003

Not a valid bug report!

This is the Issue Tracker system, not a helpdesk! You can get help from the
public users mailing list or on the forum at

Before you file further issues or post again here, please read our guidelines on
<> and  
<>, then select
correct information for all Issue Tracker selection fields, 
contribute a clear step by step instruction containing all observations (error
messages ...), _every_key_press_and_every_mouse_click_ how to reproduce the
problem, and explain why you believe that your results are unexpected.
That means (for example): 
 do not write something like "I am not able to ...", but
  6. left mouse click on …
     expected: …, color of … changes, … 
     actual: no …., color remains white, no …

Screenshots might help to explain the problem.

- always specify your OOo version, localization,
  OS and Platform you used for your tests!
- attach a sample document (always with ODF source document)!

I will close the issue within 10 days if we don't get required further information.
