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.

First create a new report called Spielberg, and within this create a dataset showing the 10 films in the database directed by Steven Spielberg in film name order, with their budget and box office takings.

Use this dataset to create a pie chart (it absolutely does NOT have to look like this one):

Pie chart with tooltip

Assign a tooltip to each pie slice so it says what will happen when you click on it.


Now create another report called SpielbergFilms, which contains a list giving the details for a film whose value will be passed in as a hidden parameter called @FilmId.  When you click on a pie slice, get this report to appear:

The list of the film's details

When you click on the back button, it will return you to the main report.


Close down all of your open reports (when you're happy they're all working, that is).
