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.

Create the following report, using the thoughts below:

Report Builder 3.0 exercise - Tables (image 1)

The report lists the 4 films made by directors whose names start with an E

Some thoughts to help you:

  • The border effect shown was achieved by putting the table in a rectangle
  • The number formatting code used to scale all of the numbers to the nearest million was $#,##0,,"m"
  • The filter shows all of the films where the DirectorName field is Like E*
  • The films are sorted alphabetically by film name

When (if?) you've finished, save this report as E-Directors.
