Creating bullet charts in Excel can be a bit tricky. This slidedeck lays out a step-by-step approach to creating bullet charts in Excel. The approach was first made public by Jorge Camoes (http://www.excelcharts.com/blog/easy-way-make-bullet-charts-boxplots-excel/). An alternative version was published in early 2011 by Jon Peltier (http://peltiertech.com/WordPress/how-to-make-horizontal-bullet-graphs-in-excel/). The Excel file is available on my website (http://policyviz.com/a-step-by-step-guide-to-making-bullet-charts-in-excel).
