How to change the color of each pie chart slice in access?

Copper Contributor

I need to set standard colors for Pie charts in our Access database. Currently, this is what I see. But our organization has standard colors used in other applications and want to use it in access charts as well. piechart.pngI am also attaching a screenshot of the chart settings.  chartSettings.png

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you!

This hasn't changed since then. There are color options for the other chart types but not for pie charts.


Maybe you can use the old charts still available in Access, where you can set the colors also in pie charts.
