MSSQL Server Reporting Services: Master Chart Reports: Pie Charts in Reporting Services - Page 6

By William Pearson

Populate the Pie Chart item to Meet the Business Requirements

Our next steps focus upon simply dragging fields from the Fields window. Ensure that the Fields window appears, either fixed in place or as a dynamic tab (as mine appears in Illustration 15 above), for easy access in accomplishing the next steps.

1.  Drag the VendorID field from the Fields window, dropping it on Drop Data Fields Here section of the generic chart item on the Layout tab.

2.  Drag the StateCode field and drop it on the area of the chart item marked Drop Category Fields Here.

The fields are depicted, circled, in Illustration 17, with arrows (in different colors) pointing to the sections into which we are dropping each.
