Create a stored procedure called spFilmsByLength listing all of the films whose duration in minutes lies between two parameter values (the upper one of which may be null, in which case it should be ignored). 

Somewhere within your stored procedure should be a criterion similar to:

(RunTimeMinutes <= @MaxLength or @MaxLength is null)

Create a report based on this stored procedure called Length IS important to look like this when it first loads (ie the minimum length should default to 120, and the maximum should allow null values):

Report of films

The duration should last between two values which the user will type in.

Check that your report works for various combinations of parameters, then close it down.
