How to build an excel bar chart to reflect percentage completed

Hi experts

I'm not very experienced at creating excel charts. I need to create a chart that will display how complete a project is for the month.

I really have no idea where to start with this except the obvious

                      Jan      Feb    March   April ...
% complete                                         70%

See attached image below. Basically it is a rectangle and the red fill represents the amount completed. The amount completed (eg 70%) is displayed at the end of the bar.

Can someone please guide me on how I would go about setting this up?
