Create a Speedometer Chart in Excel 2010

Sometimes...don't you feel the need for speed? Get into the car and just press the pedal and watch the speedometer needle go and go.  Of course that's probably not the safest thing to do in the real world in most settings.  So let do it in a more safe and benign environment - in your spreadsheet but with the same excitement! If you're creating dashboards or just wanted to add some flair to data that you're sharing, a speedometer chart may just fit the bill.  The excitement it adds is the green, yellow and red colors! And seeing the needle moving to the different colors like moving from yellow to red...that just screams the word "dramatic" (or "dangerous" depending on your audience).  Anyways a speedometer chart just presents data in a familiar dashboard analogy so if you wanted to add some visual appeal to your data, try a speedometer chart.  Check out the video below.
