Just divide it and display as a percent
SUM(D34:D63)/50600

The pie charts show as percentages by default. Are you wanting to show a blank slice?

You could make another cell that equals =50600 - sum(all the other cells). Then add that cell to the pie chart and format it white.

I want to show total sales compared to sales goal. So the blank slice would be unattained sales.

So, do you want the blank so it looks like a guage? The one on the right was created by hitting 'Edit Chart' and changing the background of the unattained slice to white.
Here's a link if you want to see.
