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 show the following fields:

  • From the tblCertificate table, the Certificate and CertificateId fields
  • From the tblFilm table, the FilmRunTimeMinutes field
  • From the tblCountry table, the CountryName field

Create a matrix comparing the average length of films by certificate and country:

Your matrix should include subtotals

To sort the certificates properly, sort the Certificate group by the CertificateId field (which as it happens will list them in the right order).

Save this report as Mean lengths.
