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 run the action query called qryBillionDollarFilms in the above database, which should create a table containing the 27 films in the database which took more than $1 billion dollars at the box office:

Warnings message

The hard thing will be to avoid messages like this appearing.

To do this, create a new procedure called BillionDollarFilms in a new or existing module which should:

  1. Turn warning messages off.
  2. Run the action query called qryBillionDollarFilms.
  3. Turn warning messages back on again.
  4. Display a message saying what's happened (see below).
  5. Open up the table created (it's called Billion dollar films) so you can see the results.

Here's what your message box might say:

Message box

The sort of thing you might say (note the title has been changed, and there is only one button).

Save and close any tables, queries and modules you have open.
