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 called Gauge The Age, add a data source which connects to the Movies database and a dataset which selects these fields from the Film table:
Select these two fields.
Add a calculated field called Age to work out an approximate age in years for each film:
Use the DateDiff function to calculate an approximate age.
Add a table which displays the Title and ReleaseDate fields and add a gauge to the last column:
Choose a different type of gauge if you prefer.
Modify the gauge in the following ways:
- Assign the Age field to the gauge's pointer.
- Assign the Age field to the label (insert a label if you need to).
- Alter the scale interval to 25.
- Display major tick marks on the scale.
- Change the type of pointer to a Marker.
- Change the pointer colour.
