Exercise: Using embedded code to calculate profit margin
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend the Wise Owl course listed below!
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.
The aim of this exercise is to show the profit margin for the 10 most expensive films:
For each film, we'll calculate and show the profit margin.
To do this, first create a new report called Ice is better than water, and within this create a table as shown above.
To get the top 10 films, create a dataset ordering the films in descending film budget order, then amend the SQL string generated so that it begins: SELECT TOP 10 ...
Now create an embedded function to calculate the profit margin using the following formula:
Call your embedded function within an expression to display the profit margin:
What your profit margin expression might look like.
Finally close your report down!
