    Raise a pie slice (Excel 2002)

    Is it at all possible to raise a slice of a pie chart slightly higher that the other slices to add emphasis to the slice?
    I have never seen that option in excel, but maybe thare is a trick to doing it???

    You can pull one slice out of the pie:
    - Click on the pie.
    - Click on the slice you want to emphasize.
    - Drag it out from the center.

    Yes, I use this all the time to emphasise the main slice, but I want it raised up slightly higher that the other slices too! Any ideas if that can be done?

    Yes, very nifty...this is the trick I was after.
    Thx Steve...very creative.
    I grouped the two charts, and rotated the slices too. Totally editable....and edible too (very tasty!) <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>
