Would like to display a bar representing percent complete value on a scale of 0 to 100 (like a progress bar).  Databar doesn't seem to fit the bill (don't have vertical axis data),  dialgauge has too much stuff and looks blurry, chart 100% stacked bar seems to kindof fit the bill but I only have one category and it looks odd, also too much stuff there.  The value of the percent is a field in my dataset, how do I display a simple bar with it?

What I usually do, if you can express the data in a table, is to drop a horizontal bar chart into a group header cell into that table that shows the data, then for the values of that chart, put your percentage values.

I ended up inserting a horizontal linear gauge and stripping away much of the dispaly features and got exactly what I was hoping for.  In the Gauge Data popup, I set LinearPoint1 = my data field that contained the percent I wanted to use, set the scale from 0 to 100, got rid of major and minor tick marks and the "caution" zone.

Tried chart, didn't get results I was hoping for.  Played around with gauge and finally got what I wanted, hope this helps someone else someday.
