Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help). Once you've done this:
  1. Go into SQL Server Management Studio;
  2. Open the SQL file you've just unzipped (you can press CTRL + O to do this); then
  3. Execute this script.

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).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

First create a new report called Spielberg, and within this create a dataset showing the films in the database directed by Steven Spielberg in film name order, with the budget for each.  Use this dataset to create a pie chart (it absolutely does NOT have to look like this one):

Pie chart

Assign a tooltip to each pie slice so it says what will happen when you click on it.

Now create another report called SpielbergFilms, which contains a list giving the details for a film whose value will be passed in as a hidden parameter called @FilmId.  When you click on a pie slice, get this report to appear:


When you click on the back button, it will return you to the main report.

Close down all of your open reports (when you're happy they're all working, that is).
