- Go into SQL Server Management Studio;
- Open the SQL file you've just unzipped (you can press CTRL + O to do this); then

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.
Create a report called Hit List, add a data source which connects to the Movies database and a dataset which selects the following fields for films with a GenreID of 17 (martial arts films):
Select these fields from the Film and Country tables.
Add a list to the report and create text boxes to display the fields shown below:
Ad a couple of text boxes to label the fields too.
Add a gauge to display the run time of each film:
Use a different type of gauge if you prefer.
Add a data bar to display the BudgetDollars and BoxOfficeDollars fields:
Add each field to the Values area of the Chart Data pane.
Edit the horizontal axis of the data bar so that it doesn't align within the list:
Uncheck this box on the Horizontal Axis Properties dialog box.
Apply formatting to the items in the list so that the report resembles this one when you run it:
Feel free to improve on this formatting.
Save and close the report.
