Pie of Pie Chart type with smaller pie showing slices of main slic
How can I do the following:
Lets say I have the following labels and data
For the main pie I have A,B,C labels with A =5, B =10, and C =20. So my
main pie would show 3 slices with C being the largest slice.
To do this I highlight the 3 labels and their data and choose Insert, Pie,
Pie in a Pie to show a main pie on the left with 3 slices and a smaller solid
pie to the right with series lines connectiing them.
I want to show the solid smaller pie on the right in several slices to show
how the C slice of 20 is broken down. lets say the main slice C of 20 is made
up ...Typing in macros
I have made a few macros and use them in word and excel
2000. When I see typed out macros on the message boards I
am not quite sure how to use them. Do I go into the
editor, type them in and then link them with a button on
the toolbar? What module do I put them in and is there
one for the personal worksheet. I have been struggling
with the syntax of Visual Basics for years. Just need a
step by step explanation.
Thank You Sue
In general, the macros you see in the groups are likely to be ordinary macros
that will go into a general module in the VBE, eg:-

I would like to use the something like the database count function DCOUNT to
count the number of cells with specific text.
For instance, in a database of schools, how many schools have electricity
with the options being "HAVE" and "DOESN'T HAVE".
I know I could manually add a column with 1s or 0s to achieve this, but is
there away to do this with text??

I've read where Microsoft recommends rebuilding your FTI once per week.
However, I have one server with a 100GB information store & the FTI only

feasable to reindex every week.
The server is a brand-new Dell 2600 with dual P-IV 2.8 GHz CPU's, 3GB RAM
