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.

Find and double-click on the query called qryDoubleDigitOscars - it should list out the films which won at least 10 Oscars:

Multiple Oscars

The best 4 films ever made? Perhaps not.

Your task now is to do the same thing in VBA!  Read on ...

Close the query down, and create a new subroutine called ShowDDOscars (either in a new module, or one you've already created).  This subroutine should:

  1. Open the query above.
  2. Use the MsgBox command to display a message summarising the results.
  3. Close the query down.

Here's what you should see on screen:

Query message

Feel free to change the text of the message to something more in line with your own taste.

Save and close this module.
