Excel Video 127 explodes a pie chart. In Excel-speak, exploding a slice (or more) of a pie chart is a way to separate the slice(s) from the main pie. You can control how far away from the pie that slices explode to get just the effect and emphasis you need.
There’s also an easy way to rotate the pie so that you can emphasize a slice at the top of the pie, next to a heading or text box, or wherever you choose. By exploding, rotating, and formatting your pie slices you can quickly draw viewers’ attention to focus on the message your chart portrays.
