How to print time range on Gantt chart

I am running MSP 2003 SP3. I want to print the time range of each task on the Gantt chart. It is a 5 day project with 1000 tasks, so it would be helpful to include both the start time and end time above the bar. I don't want the date as this would be too crowded.I have seen this before on a print out, but I can't see to figure out how to do it.Thanks.

No, I want to keep the Gantt chart in days. But I want to add a label to each task bar that includes the start and end time of each task, similar to adding the resource name label on the chart.I have seen this before, but cant figure out how to get it there.

Re: How to print time range on Gantt chart

If you want to show the start time and complete the time according to the task above each bar on the Gantt chart , then you can try adding values to the bars. Go to Format > Bar Styles, select the bar and specify the field you might be willing to show. You can add [start] field or the [finish] field but then it will show up date and time. In order to show time part of the start and finish field you will have to create a custom field using formula. You can first add text field to the table and add formula via Tools > Customize > Fields. The below formula will help you for pulling date portion from the start and finish fields:

Format([Start],"hh:mm") & " to " & Format([Finish],"hh:mm")

You can now show the text field above the task bar via

Then show the text field above the task bar via Format > Bar Styles.
