I need to make something like this in Excel. Four shades (I'll change the color) indicating quartiles - just four even shapes to represent. The numbers on the bottom represent the quartile value. The yellow marker is where the person is on that said scale.

I've tried stacked columns and bars. Stacked bars with combo chart indicating line marker for the actual isn't an option because the 4 shades still represent the percentages (they end up being uneven)

Requirement: It is important that it's horizontal. Needs to read from data. Needs to be repeatable from client to client. Is it possible to do this in Excel?

with E1 containing the number of spaces each quartile cell will accomodate (in the example 39)

C3:D3C3=IF(AND($C$1>=B4,$C$1<C4),REPT(" ",INT(($C$1-B4)*$E$1/(C4-B4))) &"◊","")
E3E3=IF(AND($C$1>=D4,$C$1<=E4),REPT(" ",INT(($C$1-D4)*$E$1/(E4-D4))) &"◊","")

I will give this a go early next week (have to travel out of town and will be AFK. And if it works, I'll mark this as a solution. I'm quite excited to try it out. Thank you!
