Select the range A1:F8 and create a standard line chart no markers.
Double click the Future Line series and set the Y Error bars Custom series to G2:G8

Double click the error line and format that as requried.

If you require the datum line to completely cover the plot area you will need to fix the maximum value of the Y axis.
