    Default Simple Bar Chart

    I'm trying to create a Simple Bar Chart showing percentage results of a "gender" field (Sorry this is beginner level); simply a graphical representation of the "male" and "female" contents. The grid looks great but I'm having no luck with the expression. Please can someone help with the calculated values to make that work?
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    If you want it plain-and-simple you could achieve much by first defining and executing a summarize operation on the table the fields are in. Make sure that the result table gets overwritten each time you run it, and that the layouts do not get deleted. A summarize on the gender field gives you results under influence of an expression if you want, and next you could open a simplecharts graph based on that using nothing more then action scription.
    Have a go at it, it works simple and fast.

    Kind regards,

    Marcel
