How do I widen Data Labels in MS Powerpoint Pie Charts?
My Data Labels in my Pie Chart are Category, Value. Even though there is plenty of room in the Pie Slice, the text is wrapping, which I do not want. I click on the Data Label, and though I can move it around, I can't re-size it. I right-click on it, and whether I choose Format Data Label or Format Data Series, there is no option for widening the label, re-sizing it, or de-activating wrap-text. Is there a way I can stretch this Data Label out, so it extends across the whole slice?

What I normally do when the text wraps in a chart, is to click on the chart, then use the Formatting Toolbar, and change the Font Size to 8pt or type '6' in the font size box and enter. this should make your text smaller and it won't be wrapped.

You wouldn't be able to resize the Data Labels. The only thing you can do is either resize the Chart Area so that things will space out accordingly or right-click and format the Data Labels and make the font smaller.

When you are creating charts in Excel a data series refers to the sets of values that are going to be on the chart, be it a line chart, a bar chart, a pie chart etc. Different types of charts can work with different kinds of series. If you select the data you want to chart, and use the Chart Wizard, it will detect what data you have chosen and define it into series for the purposes of being on the chart. You can do things like give names to the series or set colours for them or put titles and legends on the charts for them, and lots of other things. When you are working with a chart, a Chart menu will appear on the menu bar and there are options in it to do things with the different series that are in it.
Chances are you have chosen 'stroke' color as 'blank/empty' in the first pie chart, and 'stroke' color as 'black' in subsequent charts, by mistake. So as a result the charts are having a black outline. You simply have to select 'stroke' or 'outline' color as blank as you did in the first chart. Colors can be chosen in the 'swatches' palette, either for 'fill' or 'stroke' or both. Hope this solves the problem.
Check the source data that it is using to create your chart (right-click choose SOURCE DATA). The result you're getting sounds as if it may not include all the data you want to chart. Generally should include at least two rows AND at least two columns.
