Is this of any use to you click here

I have used it for a number of years now and wouldn't be without it, current cost is $49, approx £26.87.

Word has most flowchart symbols in the drawing toolbar, although it's not terribly easy to use.

I use Smart Draw click here it's free to try but $197 (~£108) to buy

that sounds great, except for the download, some of these programmes are plus 90 mb, so with my dial-up connection, that means taking two weeks off to sit and wait :(.................are there any available on cd?

FreeFlow is only 10.16Mb and is quite feasible under dial up, I know I've done it.
Open Office is fairly generally available on magazine cover CDs, if you haven't got one, check out the newsagent, there should be a copy on one of them.
I do however reckon that FreeFlow will be a rather better option than the flowchart section of OpenOffice, it's useful, but not on a par with the dedicated packages.

FreeFlow downloaded easily....looks good......and is now on cd..........cheers..I also found Download Express to be a good download manager :)
