Gchart Pie Output

Hi,
I want to ask sth about gchart pie graph.
When using:
detail = ******
detail_percent = best
detail_slice = best
discrete
legend;
in the PROC CHART for pie graph, if the group types as :A,B,C,D,E,F, and sub detail types as:a,b,c,d
1)when the sumvar value percents of E and F are very small, E and F will lost in the pie graph, replaced as "Others".
2)In one group type A, when the sumvar value percent of d is very small, this part show nothing about detail sector, no subgroup description, no sumvar value percent.

Why graph shows like this? And is there any option to control to make the pie graph, not merge to be "Others" and make all detail sectors showing info?
Thanks,

Fairy

Hi:
You might also want to look at the setting for the DETAIL_THRESHOLD option, described here:
http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/graphref/61884/HTML/default/gchart-pie.htm

...where it says that:
"DETAIL_THRESHOLD=percent
determines whether a detail slice is included in the inner pie. Any detail slice comprising percent or more percent of the whole pie is included. The valid range for percent is 0 to 75. The default is 4."
