Pies (2D & 3D)

Pie charts can be used for showing the parts of a whole. The pie chart can be separated or keep as a solid circle.

Frame172 Frame162

Pie charts can effectively present information in some cases, particularly when there are only 2 or 3 pieces in the pie. However, they are not usually a good choice for presenting data as the number of pieces in the pie increases. A bar chart may often be a better choice.


When producing a pie chart, we often find that we want to chart a row of values rather than a column. To do this, select the relevant row(s) (one for the values, and once for the labels) and select Data series in rows on the Display page ( the fourth or last page) of the AutoFormat Chart dialog.
