Pie chart with hatch marks (black and white)



Can someone tell me how I can create a pie chart in Excel 2007 with
hatch marks? I know they removed the functionality of this from previous
versions, I've tried some of the add-ins for "Pattern fills" that people
had posted but they do not seem functional any longer.

Please help!




Here's a not very satisfactory method.

Go to Word. Draw a box. Fill the box with the pattern you want from Format Auto Shapes. Copy the box (to the clipboard). Back to Excel and format the slice. Fill from the clipboard. The actual size of the hatching depends on the size of the Word box and the size of the pie slice but it may give you what you need.

Why do "enhancements" to Excel just make life harder?
