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