Separate High and Low Limits

When the Separate High and Low Limits box is ticked, the Pie Chart will be displayed with:

One segment representing values above the Highest value.

One segment representing values below the Lowest value.

One segment representing values above the High value (but below the Highest value).

One segment representing values below the Low value (but above the Lowest value).

When this box is ticked, the Pie Chart window could, typically, be displayed as shown in Figure 1041 below:
