Create a matrix comparing the number of Oscar nominations and the number of Oscars actually won (see the notes overleaf!):

Report Builder 3.0 exercise - Matrices (image 1)

Lots of things to watch out for here!

Some notes to help you:

  • The matrix is filtered to omit films scoring no nominations
  • You should colour pink boxes where the number of wins exceeds the number of nominations (this should never happen!).  The pink box shows an error in the underlying database.
  • Set the Hidden property of each cell of the matrix to be True if the number of values in the cell is 0
