Default How to change color scheme in pie chart?

I have a pie chart with a "3-D visual effect" and want to change the color
scheme. Can this be done and, if so, how? What I am getting now is shades
of purple and yellow and want to use the company adopted colors.

Marcelo's solution works fine on an individual chart. If you need this by
default, you can change the standard colour scheme Excel uses for charts. Go
to Tools/Options/Color. The default colours for charts are displayed below
the thin line, and Excel selects them from left to right, for the first data
series to the next. Choose the color you want to change and click modify,
and change as you see fit. Repeat for the next series as appropriate.
Good luck,
Henk
