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.
This will generate the database that you'll need to use in order to do this exercise (note that the database and script are only to be used for exercises published on this website, and may not be reused or distributed in any form without the prior written permission of Wise Owl).
Create a report called Sorted based on a dataset which includes all of the fields (use SELECT * FROM) in the Film table:
The films initially are sorted alphabetically by name.
Interactive sorting would allow us to sort by a column at a time, but for some reason we want to make this easier to use and more flexible. Create two parameters which show the fields you can sort by:
The two parameters will work identically, showing a list of possible sort fields.
Note that having created the first dropdown parameter (whose Label should be as shown above, and Value should be the corresponding field name) you may find it easier to copy the parameter in RDL view to create the second.
Change the dataset for the table so that it refers to an expression which sorts the films correctly by the two fields chosen:
We've also customised the title to show the sort fields chosen.
Reflecting on the changes you could make to improve this report further, close it down!
