Hopefully this is an easy question. I have a simple pie chart in excel, with a legend. The legend data series contains only 4 values. Let say Spring, Summer, Fall Winter. But I have more than 4 rows of data. The legend displays an entry for each value in each row. Is there an easy way for it to only show the 4 values, and add up the weights on the pie chart?

Thanks!

I am not 100% sure what you mean, but if I understand correctly, you can apply the subtotals feature on your table, then graph it. Attached file.

Use the little number icons on the upper left to expand/collapse the data. The chart will reflect whatever is displayed.

Yes thats exactly the chart I want to have. The problem is the subtotal data is hidden. I would like to print the summary for the chart, but still retaining on the detail of the data.
