    Introductions first: I am an IT trainer, mainly on Microsoft applications. I train PC, but work on a Mac at home, so sometimes get a bit lost between the two!

    I have a delegate who has just called me to ask how to do a specific organisational chart in Powerpoint 2003.

    She wants to have a chart that has 5 boxes across the top, but PP will only let her have 1 box, with 5 subordinates. Try as I do, I can't get it to have 5 boxes in the top row, then numerous boxes underneath.

    Any ideas? Or is this a case of Visio needed?

    For what its worth I never use Power point for Org charts, Visio is so much easier !

    I know this doesn't answer your quastion but it will bump it back to the top of the forum ;-)

    If she doesn't want to use Visio, has she considered drawing her own org chart using text boxes? It sounds a lot more tedious than it is. Once you create the first box, you can just copy and paste as many as you need and change the text. Then you can use the arrow connectors in PowerPoint, which automatically find the center of the box to connect to.
