I'm creating a spreadsheet for project planning and have a column that lists estimated effort as follows:
- Very High
- Very Low
I like the visual cues provided by data bars in Excel, and would like to use them to show relative effort for the "Very High" to "None" values. However I can't figure out how to do this. I thought about adding a numeric value to each value - e.g. "5 - Very High" - but I'm now stuck trying to apply the data bar criteria to a substring of the cell contents.
Is there a way to do this, or an alternate approach that would achieve the same results?
