Vertical DataBar function in Excel 2003

I use Excel 2003.

I have the following function

Public Function DataBar(lngValue As Long)

DataBar = String(lngValue, ChrW(9608))

End Function

Which I use with the following formula

=IF(S5<0,S5&" "&IF(S5/100<0,DataBar(ABS(S5/100)*0.5),""),"")

to create horizontal Data Bars

Is there anyway to create vertical data bars?

Sure, you just rotate the text alignment of your data bar text by 90 degrees and shift your data to go across a row instead of down a column (if you want it to look like a column chart.

See attached, using my databar function from http://www.mschaef.com/blog/tech/excel/databar.txt

There's nothing wrong with yours, just using mine.  The operation is the same, change orientation of font, then shift your data cells from top down, to left to right.
