Formatting Pie Chart in Cognos 11.0.8

  • 1.  Formatting Pie Chart in Cognos 11.0.8

    Hi Friends,

    I am using Cognos 11.0.8. I am trying to format a pie chart so that it looks like a pie chart in another report.
    The latter is a report that has been upgraded from Cognos 10. I am simply not getting the same formatting no matter how hard I try.
    Also noticed that the properties of pie chart as in the report upgraded from version 10 are quite different from the fresh report I am building in version 11.0.8.

    Please suggest how I can get the chart to look like the one in the other report.

    Hi Kiran,

    The chart in the upgraded report (from C10) is going to be a legacy chart. In order to use the same in Cognos 11, you have to change the visualization when you add it to the report from 11.0 Visualization to Legacy Visualization. Then you should be good to go!

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thank you! I had just figured it out - the charts option worked for me.
