"¶" & NumToBar ( 4 )
Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
This will allow you to convert any number into a bar of text blocks, which you can then further modify using Text Formatting to alter as needed.
I have found this to be very useful for creating bar charts, timelines, spacing for indenting names/titles based on order of magnitude, etc.
