You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises.

Create a stored procedure called spFemaleRoles to show the following data:

List of female roles

Your stored procedure should show all roles played by female actors, in alphabetical order of role name.

 

Create a report called FemaleRoles based on this stored procedure:

Report listing female roles

Create a report based on your stored procedure.

 

Try editing your SQL manually (ie typing code, rather than using the Insert SQL feature) to extend the stored procedure (and hence the report) to show the films in which the actors appeared:

Female actors with films

The report now includes the name of the film too.

 

You will need to refresh the fields in your dataset after changing your stored procedure.

Close this report down!
