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).

Create a stored procedure called spLuvvies to list out the actors in the database in date of birth order, with the youngest actor appearing first:

List of actors

The first few actors your stored procedure should return.

 

Now create a report called Luvvies based on this stored procedure to show these actors:

Listing results

Your report should just list out the results from the stored procedure.

 

If that was your first time using stored procedures in anger, take a few moments to reflect on how easy it all was!
