      can I compute simple statistics (crosstabs/histograms, means, etc.) on user selected fields?

      Post

      Has anybody tried to do compute simple statistics without declaring the variables to be summary fields?  We would like a user to be able to select a field and do statistics such as mean and standard deviation, median, max and min for a numeric field, or histograms or crosstabs for coded data.  This means that we don't necessarily know a priori which fields would need to be summary fields.  Are there any plug-ins to do statistics in FileMaker?  We do medical clinical research and it would be nice to be able to do something like that rather than always download the data to a statistics package.

       

      Thanks,
