    Re: Animated Pie Charts (Office 2000 SR-2)

    I do not have any experience putting a series of images together into an AVI file, but it is a simple matter to create the original images. First, create each pie chart as its own sheet. (I recommend making one to start out with, the copying it and changing the source data, to ensure that the only thing changing between graphs is the source data.) Then, with the sheet selected, Ctrl-C to copy it to the clipboard. Then paste it to your favorite graphics program (like PaintShop Pro). The rest is up to you, as I have no experience in that matter.

    Animated Pie Charts (Office 2000 SR-2)

    I would like to be able to quickly create an animated pie chart. I can create a series of ordinary static ones showing the same four statistics for each day in a given date range. But I want to 'animate' this series into a pie chart movie which will dramatically illustrate the variation over time of those four statistics. I can sort of imagine the coding I would have to write to achieve this but was wondering if anyone had already done this exercise and could suggest something to shortcut the work required? My guess is that you'd write code to produce a series of targa or tiff image files of the charts then rotoscope them with suitable software into an AVI.
    Any leads would be most appreciated.
