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.
Thank you for your help.

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.
