    So I'm creating a chart to show Uk carbon emission targets. I realise that the total percentage will not equal 100% but that's not the point of the chart...

    Although the data is correct, the figures on the chart itself is not correct. Is there a way that I can override the figures on the chart? If not, how can I make it match the table data but ignore the 100% rule?

    Thank You

    A possible solution

    Not positive what you are looking to do, but click on any of the labels in the pie chart so the text box frame with handles show up. Then click again on text in text box - a text cursor should show up and you can edit text to your liking

    The one drawback to this is that labels will no longer dynamically update

    Hope this helps

    I tried that but when I click the text box, 2 small white circles (handles) appear... clicking again does nothing :confused:

    I'm trying to create another chart that has 8 entries. When I select the table and click the desired chart, only 6 of the entries show up. Is there a limit :confused:
