Access Pie Chart Legend

Posted on 2005-03-07

Is there a way in Access to have the percentage displayed next to the categories in the legend of a pie chart instead of being displayed next to each piece of the pie?  I need the legend to look something like:

Category1  50%
Category2  25%
Category3  25%

My chart will be auto generated so it needs to happen automatically without having to manually tweak the chart each time it's generated.

Thanks for your help.

AFAIK the Legend of a chart is not capable of containing data.  How about using the datatable?
