SSRS Reporting Services | Tables exercise | Filter Tables to Show Actors and Actresses
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend one of more of the courses listed below!
- Go into SQL Server Management Studio;
- Open the SQL file you've just unzipped (you can press CTRL + O to do this); then
- 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.
Create a new report called Ladies and Gentlemen, add a data source which connects to the Movies database and create a dataset which selects the following fields:
You can select these fields from the Actor table.
Create two tables side-by-side as shown below:
Your trainer probably won't consider it cheating if you create one table and then copy and paste it.
Apply a filter to each table so that you see female actors in one table and male actors in the other.
You can apply filters to a table in the Tablix Properties dialog box.
Apply sorting and formatting to each table so that your report resembles the one shown below when you run it (your formatting doesn't need to be quite so gender-stereotyped):
The table header is created by first inserting a rectangle into the table cell. You can then insert an image and a text box into the rectangle.
Save and close your report.
