Create a query called Young female actors to show all of the female actors born since 1st January 1980, in date of birth order:

List of young female actors

The 13 records from the tblActor table that you should see.


Create a separate query called High Scrabble Scores which lists out all of the actors who have appeared in films where the name of the character played contains an X and a Z:

Actor with X and Z in character

You should just see the one role!

Pointless?  Now create a query called (somewhat pretentiously) sans point which lists out all of the female actors who were born in 1970 or have an X in their name (or both):

3 actor records

The 3 actresses you should see if you get this query right.  It's trickier than it looks!


Close down any queries that you've created.
