  1. How to make a sankey diagram in excel, by google
  2. Here’s an article on using Excel & VBA.
  3. A cloud based generator, needs investigating,
  4. as does this one,
  5. A blog article on Microsoft’s Power BI blog about Sankey diagrams (I have done this twice before).
  6. And what google suggests foe Libre Office.
  7. Here’s a list at a site called Sankey Diagrams.
  8. And it seems, there’s always Tableau.

Quite a few articles point at “R”.

The Microsoft answer is Power BI,- here’s their Getting Started page, and is it free? This page suggests it might be … but then you may have to deal with a new DML.
