Hello

I have a field called "registered" and I have a field called "graphicalregistered"

I would like to know if I have a calculation that determines the number in "Registered" _ is there a way for Filemaker to add that number of "x"s into that field.

for example

"registered = 15"

graphicalregistered = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

or

"registered = 28"

graphicalregistered = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

Is there some kind of formula to do this kind of thing?

Thanks

Graphicalregister calcululation, text results

Left("||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||", register)

an "x" can be where the pipes "|" are.

Also, the number of "|" are 100, but you can make it whatever the maximum number you will use.
