Using charts

Hi,  I am very new to FileMaker and using database in general.  Firstly thanks to those who helped me with a portal question.

My next problem encountered is how to create a chart (although I have found some great tutorials I still can't make my chart work)



I have a table with 8 fields (each field is a yes/no checkbox value option to occurrence of that item in a surgical procedure)

I need to total all the records for each field (I can do this I believe using Count? They are all set as checkboxes with Yes/No values)

Then I need to put all these totals on a single chart to show the total count for each field item and the percentage value of the whole set.


Can someone please help tell me if this is possible and how to set it up? 


I also need to create a report that shows just the total count for each field in a easy to read layout.


My knowledge of scripting etc is extremely limited but I am very happy to follow instructions and tutorials to learn.  So far I haven't been able to find how to solve the above situation.
