How to make a simple percentage bar chart without extra labels and space

Post

     I want to add a simple barometer style chart to a layout. The data involves how long someone has been in a programme that last three years. I have a field for Start Date and another one that is calculating what percentage of time has currently elapsed between the Start Date and the end of the programme (Start Date + 1095 days).

     When I try to create a simple, single data set bar chart I get something that takes up a lot of space.

     There is huge amount of empty space to the left of the chart that I can't seem to get rid of. There's space below the chart that is unnecessary. I'd prefer not to have the X axis labelled at the top -and- bottom.

     In fact, what I'd really like is a simple bar with a percentage of it filled in. But this seems to be as close as I can get.

     Can anyone offer any advice and trimming away some of the extra chrome and white space?

     Many thanks.
