This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
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.
Open the database in the above folder.
Create a query to show for each song the last year in which it charted:
White Christmas has charted three times, but the last one was in 1998
Use the RIGHT function to extract the last 4 characters, and the CLNG function to turn the result into a number of type LONG (ie an integer).
Save this query as LastChartingYear, then close the database down.
