What are the steps to create Pie Charts in Excel?

Pie charts can convert one column or row of spreadsheet data into a pie chart. Each slice of pie (data point) shows the size or percentage of that slice relative to the whole pie. Pie charts work best when: You have only one data series. A pie chart is a circle that is divided into areas, or slices. Each slice represents the count or percentage of the observations of a level for the variable. Pie charts are often used in business.

  1. In your spreadsheet, select the data to use for your pie chart.
  2. Click Insert > Insert Pie or Doughnut Chart, and then pick the chart you want.
  3. Click the chart and then click the icons next to the chart to add finishing touches.
