I have a pie chart showing total number of requirements in 3 different areas.

See attached image piechart_example
On the same pie chart, I would like to show the percentage completed within each area.
For example in A, there are a total of 17 requirements and 15 have been completed.
I want to show on the same pie chart (without changing the current shape), for A, ~88% will be highlighed while the remaining area will be shaded out.

How do I do this?

Many thanks.
Do let me know if you require further clarification.


I am using PowerPOint 2010 using standard Pie chart.

Hi,

Your data should reflect your requirements so
for the pie chart

6 data points

15 and 2,
17 and 1,
40 and 6

Yu can add the labels and then delete the one which will be greyed out change the text of the remaing labels and change the color of the pie slices to your convenience

see example
