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 which allows you to list out all of the actors born in a particular month and year:

What you should see if you choose August 1969

Note that you should allow your user to choose a day to colour pink - in the above diagram it was Monday.

If that wasn't hard enough, get Reporting Services to display a message if you choose an unpopular month:

What you should see if you choose a month in which no actors were born

Heave a big sigh of relief, save your report as Actors by birth month, and close it down.
