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 report to list out all of the films made for a country of the user's choice:

Report Builder 3.0 exercise - Parameters (image 1)

Here we're showing all films made by China

You'll need two datasets: one for the list of countries, and another for the films to be displayed in the table.

If you have time, try getting the title to display the name of the country chosen by using the Label rather than the Value property of the parameter:

Here the title displays FILMS MADE IN CHINA because we've chosen CHINA as our parameter value

Save this report as Another Country.
