3D Doughnut Plots

Click the Home | New Graph | Statistical | 3D Doughnut Plot command to display data as proportional slices of a disk or torus. Each data value is divided by the sum of all the data to determine the size of the slice. The data with the largest proportions appear as the largest slices.

The inner hole can be resized and the shape of the doughnut can be altered.

After being created, 3D doughnut plots contain each row as a separate slice of the doughnut. The doughnut plot is automatically labeled with two labels. The top label is the text in the worksheet's label column. The second label is the percentage of the doughnut for that slice. Either label can be altered to display data value, as well.

Click the 3D Doughnut Plot button to create the doughnut plot with a 3D appearance.
