Well, looks like the last Friday Excel Chart Challenge inspired people to get cracking and creative.
1) Don “Nailed it”. That is a direct quote I think I think since it was a Double Lollipop challenge, I think he should have said “Put a Stick in it”. Get it? Lollipop Stick? No….
2) Leonid came up with two ways to recreate the double lollipop Excel chart. One using High-Low Lines and one using Error Bars. Great job Leonid. And he added a complete picture tutorial. Thanks Leonid!!!

3) The other awesome chart that was submitted was by Peter. He took the concept to whole other level. He created a Double Helix DNA Strand Chart Type. I think it looks AWESOME!!!
Here is what his final chart looks like:

Awesome job Peter. Looks way cool and way to think outside of the lollipop.
I like Leonid’s idea of the error bars and the added % change. I am going to save Pete’s chart and someday figure out a way to work it into a dashboard. Good job for the both of you.
Thanks Don. I agree. Thanks guy. Steve=True
