Hi,

I have a repeating table in one of my forms. I was wondering if anyone is able to explain a way in which I can insert a pie chart into my infopath form using data from this repeating table in my form.

Thanks and Best regards

Sharon

I did a video on how to insert charts to InfoPath forms in SharePoint; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIOYP2q5OUw

However... a normal chart WP isn't going to be able access your repeating data in the form itself.

That repeating data is held as XML within the form. (Form Library right?) So I think you're going to have to introduce a Content Editor Web Part and do this in script to access the XML data, perhaps using Google Charts; https://developers.google.com/chart/

A bit wishy washy I know, but that's a tough requirement.
