Hi.

I'm trying to make a chart based in a field with 2 values (male/female), to get a simple visual comparison of how many men and women are there in a table that is basically a list of people.

I'm new to the program but I can't figure out how to do it.

Thanks a lot!

Start by making a summary report based on the Gender field... :D

Hi Vaughan

Thanks, I've done that and I have the subtotals of each value. But the thing is, how can I use them in a chart?

Nobody can help me with this? :(

If it's not possible to do it that way, any suggestion on how to organize the table to get the comparison would be appreciated.
I can't believe no one ever thought of doing such a simple chart...

I believe this one is much simpler:

Attached File  GenderChart.zip   6.78KB   82 downloads

Notes:
1. This reflects the found set only;
2. Records must be sorted by Gender.

That last one will do for my purposes.
So you need a summary field in order to count how many people are there in order to count the male and female %.

Thank you very much!
