This is probably easy but not able to figure it out.  I need to create a pie chart that show all projects that are overbudget by Reason.  I have the variance in the data and need to only show when the it is over 5%. Can some one help, the sample file is attached.

You can filter your data and on chart you will also see filtered data.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

One more question is there a way to group the variance % 0-4.99% and 5%+ so that I can show that number of projects?

That is actually what Im looking for but having a little problem with recreating.  
These are the stops I have tried and keep getting an error:  Using 2010:

Insert Pivot, Pivot Table Tools, Options,  Fields.Items.Sets, Calculated Field, Name = Group, what do I place in formula and do I need to do anything with the actual table of data?

You should at first add column to sheet1 with formula:
=IF(J2<0.05,"<5%",">=5%")
then select this new column and add pivot chart. Add it to axis fields(Categories) and to value (as count of), change chart type to pie:
