    The dynamic bar chart solution has been around for a very long time. Previously you had to utilize the pipe character trick with a bunch of global fields. Of course, the problem was that there was always the possibility that a user would need extra x axis items that wouldn’t fit in your chart, so it wasn’t really that useful. FileMaker Advanced 9 offers a unique opportunity to provide dynamic vertical bar charts with the use of the web viewer. Now that the web viewer can interpret data, you can send HTML to the web viewer to create a chart of any size and dimension.
