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 report, and add a data source to it to access the Movies database.
Create a dataset within this report to include the following fields from the table called tblDirector:
Add a table into your report, and add fields and formatting so that it looks something like this:
There aren't many female directors ...
If you have time, add interactive sorting so that you can sort by each column:
Sorting by gender, so the females are the top directors
As the diagram above shows, you may then need to widen your columns to accommodate the interactive sorting arrows.
Save your report as The Directors.
