Double Helix DNA Strand Excel Chart

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:
