You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the database in the above folder.

Create a grouping and totalling query which shows the highest box office by year:

Access 2010 exercise - Advanced queries (image 1)

The second field has been renamed, because we want to refer to it later in another query

Save this query as BoxOfficeMaxByYear, then close it down.

Create a second query based on the first query showing the title for each year of the highest grossing film:

Access 2010 exercise - Advanced queries (image 2)

This query joins the Films table to a query

Save this query as BoxOfficeMaxTitles, then close it and the database down.
