There isn't one supplied with Office, but you can design one  with a couple of label controls of the same height. One will represent the maximum value. Place another with a different background colour on top of the first with the left-hand edges coincident. Adjust its width to show the current value that you want to show.

Here is a possible solution.
It is made with some shapes for the background and the needle, and a pie chart for the values.
A macro rotates the needle.
