    [SOLVED] basket with fruits : numbers and formula

    Hello all !
    I m back with another pb...
    I have a basket with fruits : 5 apples, 2 oranges, 9 tomatoes. Some of them
    are ripe, others go rotten...
    How to get a chart with :

    Before trying, I thought it was easy... :-)
    Thanks for your help !!

    To create a chart, you could enter the data in columns, e.g.:

    Ripe Rotten
    apples
    oranges
    tomatoes

    Type the numbers for each category. Then select a cell in the list, and
    use the Chart Wizard to create a chart.

    Hello,
    Your solution is good but I don't know how many rotten apples I have :
    I have 2 columns : one for the fruit, other for the quality :
    apple rotten
    tomato rotten
    tomato ripe
    apple rotten
    apple rotten
    orange rotten...
    So, how to know how many rotten apple I have ?
    Thanks !!

    To summarize the data, you could build a pivot table and pivot chart.
    There are instructions and links for pivot tables on Jon Peltier's site:

    http://peltiertech.com/Excel/Pivots/pivotstart.htm

    Add headings to the first row of the list, e.g. Fruit, Condition
    Select a cell in the list
    Choose Data>PivotTable Report
    Click Next, select the list, click Next
    Click Layout
    Drag the Fruit button to the row area
    Drag Condition to the column area
    Drag another copy of the Fruit button to the Data area, where it will
    become Count of Fruit
    Click Next, choose a location for the Pivot Table, click Finish

    Select a cell in the pivot table, and click the chart wizard button
