Charts from value list

Recommended Posts

Hi can anyone point me in the right direction, I have a database that as a Field populated by a value list, i.e.,: Christmas,Easter,Mothers Day , etc. I want to chart how many records exist of each chosen category. I thought it would be from a summary field using Total of and count but that option isn't available, How do I get filemaker to count the number of uses of the word Christmas from that field , can anyone help please?

Thanks in advance

You use a summary field, defined as count of [any field that cannot be empty]. And - this is the important part - you sort your records by the category field.

• In a report, a summary field placed in a sub-summary (by Category) part will display the sub-summary value for that category.

• In a chart, use the summary field as the Y axis value and set the chart to "Show data points for groups of records when sorted".

      Hi everyone!
      I have a text field, with each sentence separated by ¶ .
      I would like to create buttons for each line in this field, so that I can copy each line individually (and paste manually in different application for example)
      I assume that it's easy to do in calculation with GetValue, and make a script using Get (ScriptParameter) = line number in that field, for each button. ( I ll need only 7-10 lines max).
      1. I can't figure out what script function I need to use to make a selective copy...
      2. If one of the option is Set Selection function - how would it work in my case?
      Thank you!

      I have always developed with FileMaker for windows. I have bought myself a MacBook Air and love it. So now I am using FileMaker 16 Pro advance for MAC. I know that MAC does not label their directories like windows does. So I am having problems figuring out to get the right coding to access my photos. I have a folder called "Photos" that reside on the C: drive in windows. Then I reference that folder so pictures will populate automatically when I put in a record. Here is what I have on the windows fileMaker:
      ImagePath:
      Let ( [ // Transform the contents of a container field named Images to text ImageRef = GetAsText ( ImagePath); Photos = Position ( ImageRef; "/"; 1; PatternCount ( ImageRef; "/")) ]; Middle ( ImageRef; Photos + 1; Length ( ImageRef ) - Photos ) ) images:
      "imagewin:/C:/Photos/" & Film::title & ".jpg" Then I go into Import folder and point to the folder all the photos are in. The problem I have now is how to point to that folder in "imagewin", is their an alternative called imagemac, then I could put in Macintosh HD/Users/patricks/Documents.  The folder is in the Document folder, called Photos. Thank you for any help.

      Hi guys,
      I’m brand new working with FM and would like your help with a calculation if I may. I want a calculation to display an estimated number of paint tins needed to paint a boat based on it’s length and width. With this information I would also like the cost of the estimated paint. I'm assuming IF can not be used as there are too many variables, can CASE?
      With the boats width, I've got anything over 7 classed as wide, so I've been using Jobs::BoatWidth > 7 to define narrow and wide (only two classes of widths).  I'm using the table below to give our customers a rough idea at the moment but would like information to be displayed in FM specific to boats length and width for each customer after entering that data: Jobs::BoatWidth and Jobs::BoatLength. Cost of each tin is £26.32. Hope I haven't left anything out and thanks in advance.
