Greetings!

I have one Table with 10 records and created a custom report. The data is bound successfully on the report, however, my hang-up is with the Pie Chart.

What do I need to do to create a Pie Chart with 2 Slices and the chart data changes in reference to the record?

Data in Table1
EmpId   Comp   Benefits
1         $50,000  $5,000
2         $60,000  $6,000
3         $70,000  $7,000
4         $80,000  $8,000
5         $90,000  $9,000

Desired Pie Chart Results:
2 Slices
1) Comp
2) Benefits


Thanks a million pies ;-))

Do you like to have something like this (Open Form1 or Report1)?

You can sum your fields in a query and create your chart from that. See rptTable1.

The issue here is that because your sample data had all benefits as 10% of Comp, all the charts were the same...
Obviously, (in the very rare situation, that every Bennie wall be exactly 10% of comp) it is difficult to see any differences in the charts

This is why we need data that represents real world scenarios...
In any event, ...here is my take...
