How do I know the notes of a chord?

I am on the Bb alto sax. I have a bunch of songs with chord progressions(but no notes) to improvise over, but I know nothing about chords.

1. If I see for example a F7 chord, I know the notes I should play are from the F mixolydian scale and the chord features F, A, C, Eb. How do I go about this for any chord possible?

For example, the G7 chord, thr A-7b9 chord, the D- chord, etc.

Is there some chart made for Bb saxophones with all the chords and their conponent notes? How do I know which scale any chord comes from so I can know the notes?
