Supposing you want to create a half pie or half doughnut chart based on data as the below screenshot shown. Please do as follows.

1. On the bottom of the original data, insert a total row (sum all values in the Sales column).

Now the original data takes half of the pie or doughnut, and the total takes half too.

2. Select the whole range, and then insert a pie chart of doughnut chart based on your need.

Click Insert > Insert Pie or Doughnut Chart > Pie to insert a pie chart;
Click Insert > Insert Pie or Doughnut Chart > Doughnut to insert a doughnut chart.

3. Then a pie chart or a doughnut chart is created. Right click on any series in the chart and click Format Data Series from the right-clicking menu. See screenshot:

4. In the opening Format Data Series pane, change the Angle of first slice to 270.

5. Back to the chart and click the Total series twice to select it only. In the Format Data Point pane, click the Fill & Line button, and then select No fill in the Fill section.

As the total series is hidden, only half of the pie or doughnut is displayed in the chart.

6. Now remove “Total” from the legend. Please click on “Total” to select it only, and then press the Delete key. Then the chart is displayed as the below screenshot shown.

7. Now you can add data labels to the series. Please select the chart, click the Chart Elements button at the upper right corner of the chart, and then check the Data Labels box.

8. As you can see, the data label is also added to the hidden “Total” series. Please select all data labels in the chart, click the data label on the “Total” series to select it only, and then press the Delete key.
