Default Chart and Data Problem

Hello

I have a problem.

For my work, I compile staff absence spreadsheets with the following
columns.

Name
Department
Month
Reason.

What I want to do is create a chart for each month based on the department
data (eg. a pie chart for January may show two thirds of the area being 'IT
Department' and one third may say 'Personnel Department'.

How would I do that ?

Regards

Jonathan

It sounds like you'll have to create a pivot table with a pivot chart to do
this. See http://www.allaboutoffice.co.uk/expivot.htm for details. The
pivot table can count the number of instances of each department and then if
you select only the month you require you can use a pie chart pivot chart to
display that data.
