Pie Chart  Percentage of a total?
So I have what is likely a simple question. What I am trying to do in excel
2007 is to take my total Income, and from my income see what percentage goes to my expenses. For example I spent roughly 300.00 on gas from my 1500.00 monthly income. Can I get a pie chart to take out what percentage on my mulitple expenses are from my total monthly income? I would like a pie chart showing all of this and the leftover to be 'other'. Can this be calculated or would I need to calculate the percentages first? THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :))

You need to do all the calulations on the spreadsheet, then let the chart display the results. Never try to make the charts do the calculating.
