    Sunburst Chart Color Issue

    I'm using Excel 2016. Has anyone encountered issues when trying to change the colors in a sunburst chart? There are 4 rings. There is one area on the 2nd outer most ring that I can't seem to isolate to change its color. I have another area on the outer most ring that is green, but when selected is yellow. I want it to stay yellow.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Right click on the chart, Format Plot Area, Click on the down arrow next to Plot Area Options, then see if you can select the rings from there to change the color.

    I can't see how to select individual rings.

    I'm not sure that you can or cannot as I have not used one myself but if you upload a small representative sample of your data and chart, we can take a look.

    To upload an Excel workbook, follow these steps:
    1) Click on "Go Advanced"
    2) Click on "Manage Attachments"
    3) Click on "Choose File"
    4) Choose your file and click on "Open"
    5) Click on "Upload"
    6) Click on "Close this window"

    Ran out of time. Will have to come back to this.

    One thing that I noticed is that all other sunburst charts that I've seen have the same color going out from the center instead of in rings.
