Presumably you're using a bar chart for this?

If so I *think* that you'll not be able to add a vertical red line, because that isn't part of a bar chart.

Although someone else might have better ideas...

Draw a red line in Draw and paste it? It's not a very clean approach but I don't think Calc is sophisticated enough to do it otherwise.

If you're doing a lot of Gantt charts you might want to look into some dedicated progect management software. GanttProject ( showed up in a quick google.

I did one quasi-Gantt chart in Calc and decided it was a lot of work. :(
