REPORT BUILDER EXERCISES
Exercise: Create a table based on a cube, and apply interactive sorting
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 the course listed below!
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.
If you haven't already done so, restore the database in the above folder into Analysis Services in Management Studio (not for copying or commercial use). The database should contain 3 dimensions and one cube called MAM.
Create a report which consists of a single table listing out total quantity sold by species and year:
You'll need to insert a row at the top of your report, and merge its cells to get the title.
Now apply interactive sorting so that you can sort each column easily:
Here we've sorted the data in descending quantity sold order.
To do this, think where you would right-click to apply interactive sorting.
Save this report as Simple table, then close it down.
