Create a report called For Kids Who Can't Read Good and add data sources which connect to the Movies and Books databases.
Create a dataset which selects the following fields from the Books database:
Use the Book and Author tables to select these fields.
Add a table to the report and assign fields so that it resembles the one shown below:
Create three empty columns ready to display data from a second dataset.
Create a new dataset which includes these fields from the Movies database:
You can get these three fields from the Film table.
Add a calculated field called ReleaseYear to the dataset which calculates the year in which each film was released.
Add expressions to the relevant columns of the table which use the Lookup function to return the Title and ReleaseYear of the film based on each book.
Here's how to return the title of a film. Life is much easier when your datasets have columns with matching names!
Add an expression to the Delay column of the table which subtracts the YearPublished field from the value of the Year Released column.
You can refer to a text box in the ReportItems collection but check its name first!
Sort the table in descending order of Delay. You'll need to use an expression to do this and you can't refer to a report item!
Is that enough time to finish War and Peace?
Save and close the report.
