# How can I create a Pie (Doughnut) Chart with only one measure

Hi Community

I have been struggling at bit with this one, and I can't seem get a grasp of how to do it

I thought I was clever since the Weight can be any number between 0 and 10, so I thought it would be easy to make something like this

As Andy Kriebel shows in this blog post Tableau Tip: How to make KPI donut charts or the example that is mentioned on Rahul Singh's Blog Donut Chart In Tableau, but I can't quite get my head around how to make something like this (right now I would settle for a simple pie chart).

TIA

Hi,

I've attached the workbook.

Okay sorry for not explicit explaining what I was looking for.

In this case I am not interested in the value per answer, but the total average.

In my above example I believe the average weight is 60%

No problem!

The issue that you were having was that you needed to make another measure to be able to compare the 60% value against.

If 100% is what we define to be the full pie, then it becomes just Weight % - 1 to get you your 40% pie that's remaining.
