Excel does not come with boxplot charts.

What is the best technique to simulate boxplot charts in Excel?

I'm interested to

  • draw horizontal and vertical charts
  • display the mean in addition to the quartiles and median.

The best I've found is this one: Peltier Tech Box and Whisker Chart Utility for Excel

  • Supports vertical and horizontal charts
  • Displays the mean in addition to the quartiles and median.
  • Comes with an Excel file to tweak for quick results.

You might need to install the service pack for Excel 2008 Mac to have "custom error bars", as requested per the technique. Service pack I had to install: – ewernli Dec 26 '11 at 13:16
