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 new report based on a dataset showing actors and the films that they have appeared in.  The dataset should omit any films which didn't win any Oscars:

The filter ensures that we only show actors for films which have won at least Oscar

Create a table to show each actor's name, with a data bar showing the number of films they've made:

Your data bars may look different

You can apply data labels by right-clicking on the data bars and choosing Show Data Labels.

Save this report as Winners only, then close it down.
