I have succesfully made a report that contains a pie chart (one page per customer showing percent sales).  The ONLY problem is on some charts the data labels for the pie slice overlaps other data lables and you can't read them.  I've tried EVERYTING I can think of but some still overlap.   HELP

RE: data labels in Graphs

How many items are in each pie chart? You might consider limiting the number of line items to graph. I have a similar program that uses the Top 5 or Top 10 results then graphs them. I'm sure there is a way to use a calculated field to add an "All Others" to the top line items and include it in your pie.
