we have used two types of conditional formatting to create such data bars.
- Fill Background color
- Data Bar
In the status column (Column D), we put the formula “=100%-C2” and fill it down.
First conditional formatting we put to fill the background color on the base of Column B.
- For “On Time”, we put green color.
- For “Delayed”, we put red color.
Then we put the Data Bar Conditional formatting with below setting-
- Check Show Bar only.
- Take “Type” as “Number” for Minimum and Maximum.
- Put 0 for minimum and 1 for maximum.
- Select color as white.
- Select Bar Direction Right-to-Left
- Click on OK
