This article describes how to create a Pie Of Pie chart or Bar Of Pie chartin Microsoft Excel 97.
You can use a Pie Of Pie chart or a Bar Of Pie chart to graphicallyrepresent one component of a pie chart. The total value of one slice willbe 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 ofthe data range.
The following example creates a Bar Of Pie chart. The first four items ofdata add up to 100% and the last three values represent the total for thecategory 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) thedata representing the total value of the pie slice that will be broken downfrom 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 thecategory 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%
