### Title

Graph Charting Surival Rate

### Post

Hi there,

I have an inventory that keeps track of fish. Each line has a unique stock number that allows us to keep track of lines. Every week, survival rates for a subset of fish are scanned in using filemaker go, and inputted as new records in a "survival rate" table. The surivival rate table has the following fields:

date of entry

stock number (which is the unique fish line number)

Number of fish estimated

Within the "line details" section of the inventory, there is a tab where you can see survival rates in a line graph with date on the x axis and number of fish estimated on the y axis. This is great when you are looking for one particular line, but I would like to find a way to show this graph for many lines on the same graph. Is this possible? Does anyone have an idea for a good way to show this much data? The thought I had would be to have a chart in which each stock number is its own series, but I do not know how to do this, nor whether it would even be feasible to look at that amount of data.

We would like to be able to get a good summary of this data, so we can see overall how well fish are surviving and make appropriate changes.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Just to be sure I understand your request, would each fish line have it's own line (Y- series) on the chart? Or do you want to chart an aggregate value such as a sum or average that combines data from more than one fish line into a single charted line?

Both are possible.
