Basic Categorical Pie Chart Question


M

Mr. Werth

Dear Friends:

I have a basic categorical data set which is based on expense
categories for a personal budget for my students:
E 10.00
T 30.00
C 80.00
O 40.00
F 20.00
E 10.00

I would like for them to highligh their data and make a pie chart so
that same categories are lumped together. In the data set above, the
"E" category should total $20, but when I insert the pie chart in the
spreadsheet, it separates them as two different "E"s.

If I am able to ask Excel to group same categories together and total,
then I would like for the category labels and percentages to show on
the chart. A legend would be nice, too.

Could you please tell me how to make Excel pool the same categories
together for the pie chart? If you have time to explain how to make
the labels appear, I would greatly appreciate that as well. Thank you
so much!

Sincerely,

Michael

Thank you, David:

It was tricky at first, but now I'm getting the idea here. Very nice
feature that I never tried before, thank you!

Sincerely,
