Can someone please show me how to create dynamic  chart for the data attached here?  In the attached example, mint does not have any sales.  How can i build a dynamic chart that hides mint from the chart and only show mint sales on the chart when mint is not blank.

Recast your source data to look like this:

Category      Product      Result
Percent Sales      cookie      42.64%
Percent Sales      sweets      84.75%
Percent Sales      dough      22.64%
Percent Sales      oil      20.00%
Percent Sales      biscuit      52.16%
Percent Rewards      cookie      48.10%
Percent Rewards      sweets      70.29%
Percent Rewards      dough      38.10%
Percent Rewards      biscuit      92.78%

Then create a PivotChart on that data, with Product as the Axis field, Category as the Legend field, and Sum of Result as the Value field

You're welcome.
#N/A is necessary to hide the series with no data in this case Mint sales.
