- A doughnut chart is similar…to looking at a column chart or a bar chart,…but it adds the ability to represent the data…much like a pie chart.…You're going to take the overall values…and curve them around,…so think of it this way,…it's like a column chart that you wrapped into a pie.…In this particular case, I've got sales data…for four quarters, for two years.…Let's highlight that, and we'll press Ctrl+T…to turn this into a table,…and tell it to use the tables as headers.…
There we go.…We have the quarters, and then the values for each quarter.…Now what I want to do is I'll select that data.…Ctrl+A selects everything in the table,…and I could choose to Insert the doughnut chart.…Now you won't necessarily see that here,…so you can always pop this out…and that will bring up the Insert Chart dialog.…You'll find the doughnut chart…under the All Charts view,…and it's located under Pie.…So just click it at the end there,…and what you're seeing is the change in value.…
Alright, this is pretty clear.…I want to see these broken down by quarters,…
