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.

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:
