Create a stored procedure called spFemaleRoles to show the following data:

List of female roles

Your stored procedure should show all roles played by female actors, in alphabetical order of role name.

 

Here are the tables that you'll need to join together to do this:

Tables to join

The tables and fields that you'll need for your stored procedure.

Now create a report called FemaleRoles based on this stored procedure:

Report based on stored procedure

Create a report based on your stored procedure.

 

Try editing your SQL manually to include the number of Oscars won by each film, and then add this column to your report.

You will need to refresh the fields in your dataset after changing your stored procedure.

Close your report down!
