This article describes how to create a Pie Of Pie chart or Bar Of Pie chart in Microsoft Excel 97.
You can use a Pie Of Pie chart or a Bar Of Pie chart to graphically represent one component of a pie chart. The total value of one slice will be represented by multiple slices of another pie or by bars of a column. The data that is representing another value needs to be the last items of the data range.
The following example creates a Bar Of Pie chart. The first four items of data add up to 100% and the last three values represent the total for the category Stocks (the fourth piece of the pie).
A1: Cash B1: 5% A2: Bonds B2: 20% A3: Other Investments B3: 15% A4: Stocks B4: 60% A5: U.S. Stocks B5: 20% A6: Canadian Stocks B6: 10% A7: European Stocks B7: 30%
Before you create the Bar Of Pie chart, you should remove (or hide) the data representing the total value of the pie slice that will be broken down from the data range. In this example, you should remove row four (Stocks) from the data. You will use the values below row four to represent the category Stocks.
The new data range with the fourth row hidden will appear as follows:
A1: Cash B1: 5% A2: Bonds B2: 20% A3: Other Investments B3: 15% A5: U.S. Stocks B5: 20% A6: Canadian Stocks B6: 10% A7: European Stocks B7: 30%
