First, open Microsoft Excel on your computer. If you don't have Excel, you can download a free trial from Microsoft's website.
Enter Your Data into Excel:
Next, enter your data into Excel. If you want to create a pie chart of the data in cells A1 to A4, you would enter that data like this:
A1: Category 1
A3: Category 2
Select the Data You Want to Include in Your Pie Chart:
Once your data is entered into Excel, select the data you want to include in your pie chart. To do this, click on the cell in the upper-left corner of your data (A1 in our example), then hold down the "Shift" key and click on the cell in the lower-right corner of your data (A4 in our example). This will select all of the cells in between those two cells.
Click the "Insert" Tab:
Now that your data is selected, click on the "Insert" tab at the top of Excel.
Under the "Charts" section, click on the "Pie" button.
Select the Type of Pie Chart You Want to Create:
A new window will pop up with different types of pie charts. Select the type of pie chart you want to create and click "OK."
Your Pie Chart Will Appear:
Now you have a beautiful pie chart that you can use to visualize your data!
