# Transition Metals' Charges

I came across a compound $\ce{[FeO4]^{2-}}$ but $\ce{Fe}$ has +6 charge according to my calculations. How this is possible ? Or it is possible but my periodic table is kind of non-detailed one. (On the table I got $d$-metals possible charges).

If you write out the electron configuration of Fe, you will find it has $3\text{d}^6 4\text{s}^2$ in its valence level, meaning it can theoretically take on any oxidation state from +1 to +8 (and even some negative states, for that matter).
