Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

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.

Create a report, with a dataset showing the language, country, name and box office takings for each film.  You'll need to include the tblCountry, tblLanguage and tblFilm tables in your dataset.

Now create a grouped table listing out films by language, and within language by country, including subtotals of box office takings:

The effect is easiest to see for Japanese-language films

If you have time, see if you can hide the details for each language until a user clicks on the outline symbol next to it:
