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).

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.

First, create a report called Iffy data, to contain a dataset showing the number of films for each certificate:

Number of films by certificate

We've sorted the certificates by order of CertificateId.

The aim of this exercise is to create a table as follows:

Table showing percentages per certificate

This table will refer to the total number of films 8 times (once per row, and once for the column heading).  To speed things up, first create a report variable to hold the total number of films in the dataset.  You can now create your report!

When you've finished, close down your report.
