We live in a digitalized world. Data has become a part of our lives and a part of business issues. Businesses produce a lot of data on their performance each day, which is why it makes sense to visualize the data in different forms for easy understanding. One such form of data visualization is Pie Chart . Pie Chart can also be considered as a special version of Bar Graph, but differs from the latter on various grounds. In this article, we will understand how to create Pie Chart in Microsoft Excel 2016.
Pie charts are used to display the contribution of each value (slice) to a total (pie). Pie charts always use one data series.
To create a pie chart of the 2017 data series, execute the following steps.
1. Select the range A1:D2.
2. On the Insert tab, in the Charts group, click the Pie symbol.
3. Click Pie.
4. Click on the pie to select the whole pie. Click on a slice to drag it away from the center.
Note: only if you have numeric labels, empty cell A1 before you create the pie chart. By doing this, Excel does not recognize the numbers in column A as a data series and automatically creates the correct chart. After creating the chart, you can enter the text Year into cell A1 if you like.
