I have a report that works fine and has 3 charts in it.  I am trying to get the labels to show the percent without any decimals but every time I try to access the labels of one of the two charts, VS crashes.  I turned off the labels but now trying to turn them back on crashes VS.

This is the error I get:

Ok, I've figured out what was causing this but not how to stop it.  I changed the chart to collect the small slices and put them together as one marked Other.  If I changed the chart type I could click on the data labels even if I changed it back to a pie chart.  But whenever I put it back to collecting slices it would give me that error.  

So the work around is to get everything set up exactly the way you want it, with regards to the labels, and then set the collected slices.

Ooohh, thank  you very much!  I'll definitely read that.

I left the question up so it can be added to the knowledgebase in case anyone else experiences this problem.  It's a simple workaround but frustrating when you don't know why you can't access the data labels.
