This exercise will prove that Gangs of New York was probably the most disappointing film ever made (at least to its makers).

First create a report listing out fields from the tblFilm table:

Report Builder 3.0 exercise - Expressions (image 1)

The initial fields included in the dataset for this report

Now add a calculated field to this dataset, to give the difference between the number of Oscar nominations and the number of Oscars actually won.

Create  a table (including a page header and page footer) to list out the films where this difference was more than 6:

The table is filtered by the value of the field we've just calculated

Save this report as Vive la difference.
