Using Charts

I'm trying to get this pie chart to do what I want it to and it's not cooperating.

Here's how I want to start with this chart and then eventually make it more dynamic.

I have the chart in it's own sheet, but I want to pull information from a different sheet called 'Transaction List'.

From that sheet I am using data from rows 7- 1500

I need the categories of the pie chart to be based on the categories in column E and the values to be based on column G. I only want it to take data from rows where the value in column G is negative. I assume that for the pie chart I will need these negative values to be translated into their positive counterparts. So -33 would be 33 for the chart.

So in theory, I want the pie chart area to represent the absolute value of the total of the values in column G. And the sections of the pie chart should represent the percentages of each category subtotal in comparison with the total.

Sorry for the long description, I just don't know where to really start.

Thanks!

Select the data and create the pie chart.

Here is the "Chart Data Range" I used for the chart:

='Sheet3'!$E$1:$E$10,'Sheet3'!$H$1:$H$10

I do not know how to put and image up to show the chart I created. Hope this helps.
