In dealing with large lists, it would be helpful to be able to generate some kind of statistical report using a given column/columns. For example ideally we would like to able to find the % of items that are incomplete (using a column entitled 'completion' whose allowed inputs are 'incomplete' and 'complete) within the list and also for an individual. Can this be done and if so how?

I chanced across this webpart http://www.amrein.com/apps/page.asp?Q=5749 which provides a simple and free out of box solution to making graphs from list data.

  • I tried making a bar chart in SPD 2010 and although it does seem to change the layout of the data and it does indeed make bars, the bars are unfilled and blank. Any ideas? (I'm afraid I'm a complete noob at XSL,) I'm sorry for pestering you.
