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).
In the previous exercise you should have created a table giving the profit margin for the 10 films which cost the most to make. Our aim now is to show its status using an embedded function:
The shaded column will divide films into blockbusters, normal films and turkeys.
If you haven't already got a version of this report created, you can calculate the profit margin as (Box Office - Budget)/Budget.
To get this to work, either create a new report called P please Bob (or take a copy of one that you've already created and give it this new name) then implement the rules shown below!
We'll use the following (slightly harsh) rule to assign a status to each film:
|Less than 0 (ie the film made a loss)||Flop|
|Between 0 and 2 (ie less than 200% margin)||Run of the mill|
Your embedded function should refer to the profit margin field (as so often, you'll find life easier if you've made this a calculated field).
Close the report down, and edit the RDL code to change the word Flop to Turkey. Save and close the report, and preview it again to check that your change has worked.
