Inserting a Microsoft Organization Chart

If you need to match an existing organization chart from a previous version of PowerPoint, or create a chart layout for Co-Manager, Vertical, and Multiple Manager, then Microsoft Organization Chart is your best choice. Microsoft Organization Chart is an add-in for Microsoft Office 2007 programs, which you need to install. You can insert an Organization Chart using the Insert Object button on the Insert tab. When you create an organization chart, a sample chart appears. You can add text, add shapes, and format the chart boxes and connecting lines. To convert an existing organization chart from a previous version of PowerPoint, simply double-click the chart, and PowerPoint converts it.
