I looked in the chord chart here in GT.com however I could not find it.

That's a slash chord, because of the /. The first letter is the chord (in this case a D major chord). The letter after the slash is the lowest bass note.

So, D/F# is a D major chord with an F# in the bass. It's typically played like this:

|--2--|

|--3--|

|--2--|

|--0--|

|--0--|

|--2--|

Or this:

|-----|

|--3--|

|--2--|

|--0--|

|--0--|

|--2--|

But can also be played like this:

|--2--|

|--3--|

|--2--|

|--4--|

|-----|

|-----|

Or this:

|-----|

|-----|

|--7--|

|--7--|

|--9--|

|-----|

It's essentialy a 1st inversion D major chord. Hope that helps!
