BonaVista Systems have a very useful addin and its not too expensive either.

, winner of the BI Network's 2006 Data Visualization Competition, enhances Excel with powerful, compact visualizations such as sparklines, bullet graphs and other in-cell charts. With a basic desktop versions costing as low as $49, it's an absolute must have for financial analysts,Excel users,Microsoft BI users

I have downloaded and installed the trial and created some useful looking little charts. I definitely recommend the tutorials as they are not intuitve, but once you figure them out they are pretty easy to customise.

The picture displays some of these micro charts that I have created.
