How to create a donut chart

Hello, I need to create a donut chart from three values:

QTYMDR = sum of records in a date range search
OpenMDR = sum of records in a date range search which are in an open status
ClosedMDR = sum of records in a date range search which are in a closed status

I create a new chart with the chart wizard and then select my three values. I select donut and click next. The sum of qtymdr is at the bottom of the next screen and I then select and drop the openMDR and closedMDR into the available series text box. When I continue the report loads but it does not appear to work.

I want the QTYMDR value in the center, then OpenMDR and ClosedMDR in the outer ring.

You need to get the data in different columns. Every column has a ring in the donut. Like this:
