Hi Guys

I was wondering if any of you experts could tell me how to create a slider scale type bar chart if at all possible.

I'm due to produce my monthly energy reports at work and want to make them look a little swankier by updating and refreshing the overall format a little. A portion of my energy report consists of a breakdown of sub-electric meters and sub gas-meter (please see the brief example in the table below). You'll see from the example below the data I normally present comprises each sub-meters actual consumption, the target we set for that sub meter and the variance between the two. I usually use a simple overlapped bar chart for each sub-meter which shows target and consumption. But I want to change this to a performance type slider scale if at all possible (imagine the standard traffic light conditional formatting feature but as a slider scale).

E.g. of data and a rather cruddy diagram of what I'm after, (I do have a picture of the type of thing I am after and would post it but am quite restricted with the internet and such related stuff at work).</SPAN>

Sub Meter Name</SPAN>
Consumption</SPAN>
Target</SPAN>
Variance</SPAN>
Performance/slider scale</SPAN>
Washing Machine (elec)</SPAN>
7,985</SPAN>
8,867</SPAN>
-882</SPAN>
|||||||||||||||</SPAN>|||||||||||||||||||</SPAN>
Television (elec)</SPAN>
7,904</SPAN>
7,636</SPAN>
268</SPAN>
|||||||||||||||</SPAN>|||||||||||||||||||</SPAN>
Computer (elec)</SPAN>
3,121</SPAN>
3,315</SPAN>
-194</SPAN>
|||||||||||||||</SPAN>|||||||||||||||||||</SPAN>
Cooker (gas)</SPAN>
23,109</SPAN>
21,843</SPAN>
1,266</SPAN>
</SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>|||||||||||||||</SPAN>|||||||||||||||||||

NB/FYI: This is actual data ripped from our metering AMR software from the previous week (the data is in kilo watt hours (kWh)), the sub-meter names are labeled as such in this example for illustrative purposes only. God forbid that a TV would consume 7,904 kWh in a week! Also my cruddy slider bar diagrams are non-representative and estimations only of the data.</SPAN>

So anyway, apologies for the essay, can anybody help with this query?

Thanks, :)

You'll need to tell people what version of Excel you are using as the functionality of the latest version is significantly different from earlier versions
