Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is

Jess and I am glad to assist you today.

Are you using MS Word/Excel 2007 or 2010?
When it comes to organizational charts, it is always easier to do it with Visio. But if you only have Word and Excel, it will be easier to do it in Word. Please tell me if you are using Word 2007, 2010 or others so that I can provide detailed steps or even a sample file.

Please let me know so that I can help you further.

Best regards,

Hi Mark,

Thank you for writing back. If you are using MS Office 2010, then you can use MS Word 2010 to create the chart.

I got your image of the chart. Do you want me to create that chart for you?

The very details on how to create the org chart is described in this link:

However, based on the layout of the chart that you gave me, it is complicated so I suggest that you create the chart manually.

The keys to creating the chart are the following:
  1. Create a rectangular shape for the boxes to hold the name. Click Insert, choose Shapes, then select the rectangle. You can select the rounded rectangle if you like.
  2. Format the rectangle to be pleasing to you.
  3. Then copy the rectange over and over to meet the actual number of persons or boxes in the chart.
  4. Then position the rectangles by dragging
  5. Then use LINES to connect them. To allow the boxes to appear over the lines (to avoid the lines to overlap with the boxes, right click on the line, click Order then click Send to back.
  6. Layout the chart to meet your requirement

I am sorry if it took a while before I posted this answer. I have created the organizational chart for you. I cannot see the names in the picture you sent so I did not include them.
