Create a new report called Wanted Dead Or Alive and add a data source which connects to the Movies database.
Create a dataset based on the Actor table which includes the following fields:
Select these fields.
Add a calculated field to the dataset to determine if an actor is dead or alive.
Give the calculated field a name and click fx to open the expression builder.
Write an expression which returns True when the actor's DoD field does not contain a value.
Use the IsNothing function to do this.
Insert two tables into the report and apply filters so that one shows the actors who are still alive and the other shows those who have died.
You can test if the calculated field equals true or false. Don't forget to change the data type to Boolean.
Apply sorting and formatting to the tables so that the report resembles the one shown below:
You can use more sombre colours if you prefer.
Save and close the report.
