Modify Pie chart to show wedges in descending order of %

I have been able to generate a pie chart based on some sales data.  Is there a way to display the wedges in descending order?  Wedges are representative of sums of individual parts into grouped into a higher level category.  See cahart below. pie_example.JPG

I suggest you familiarize youself with the column property "Row Level Ordering".  That may be able to be used.

Did you try right-clicking on the Customer Invoice Qty axis and select Order By command?

Re: Modify Pie chart to show wedges in descending order of %

As a short term fix, I was able to use Value Ordering to order the largest wedges.  However, this could be very tedious to sort the entire list of wedges.  I guess this becomes a request on how to autorank these to save the time spent on manual sorting.

Visualizations superior to pie chart:

Analyze > Quality & Process > Pareto Plot  (automatically sorted)
