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.

The aim of this exercise is to produce a table of all films winning more than 10 nominations, suitably ordered.  Here's how to do this!

First create a new report, and within this create a dataset to include the following fields:

  • FilmName, FilmOscarNominations and FilmOscarWins from the tblFilm table
  • StudioName from the tblStudio table

Create a table to list out all of the films in this dataset.

Change the properties of your table to add sorting and filtering so that:

  • The films are listed in order of nominations received (with the highest number first).  Where two or more films have the same number of nominations, they are sorted by their film name.
  • Only films receiving more than 10 nominations are shown.

The table is suitably sorted and filtered

Save this report as Winning is what counts, though.  After all, anyone can be nominated for an Oscar ...
