    I have to create an internal dashboard for execs, mostly data coming from excel, but, they want it nice , colorful and lots of gay bells and whistles.

    Any recommendations?

    just set up a Google Analytics account and export that shit as a PDF and send it to them.

    That's what I did when my old job asked me for it.

    They won't know what half the shit is regardless of what you give them and after a month or two won't really care anymore, so i'd say save yourself the time and just do that method.

    just my 2 cents though. your situation might be different :dunno:

    nah, not the same.
    Its an internal site where the executives can see stats, graphs and such based on departmental performance data, nothing to do with web traffic.

    ah, ok.

    You can do some pretty cool shit with ProtoChart.

    It uses the Prototype JS framework in conjunction with Script.aculo.us and the Javascript Canvas tag to do some pretty cool shit.

    http://deensoft.com/lab/protochart/

    You basically just pass it data and it creates some nice charts.

    What language? Coldfusion can do a lot of cool stuff (graphs, charts, plots, etc...) with information pulled from a DB or wherever.

    I wanted to stay away from flash graphs on my checkbook site so people could simply print the page if they wanted to.

    check out prefuse or processing (there is also a javascript port of processing)
    both are pretty robust [free] information visualization toolkits

    but you will need to find a way to pull the data out of excel and export them into the toolkits
