Create a report showing for each film how many Oscars it has been nominated for (some notes on how to get the indicators working are shown overleaf):

SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2 exercise - Indicators (image 1)

Here we've filtered the report to show only films starting with D, in alphabetical order

Here's how your indicator should work:

  • If a film got no nominations, show a frowning face
  • If a film got 1-5 nominations (inclusive), show a neutral face
  • Otherwise, show a smiley face

Don't forget to change your indicator so that it doesn't stretch for long film names!

Save this report as Smiley faces, then close it down.
