Management has requested a report that lets them identify the total revenue and gross profit generated in every country by each product type.
They want to be able to customize this report by highlighting high and low gross profit values based on changing benchmark levels.
You will create a report that formats gross profit to appear in different colors if gross profit is exceptionally low or exceptionally high. This formatting will be based on high and low gross profit values users select using prompts at run time.
Here's a list of the tasks that you will accomplish in this demo.
Task 1. Create a report with product sales information.
Task 2. Add a calculated data item with an expression that uses parameter values, and then run the report.
Task 3. Create a variable based on the calculation.
Task 4. Apply conditional formatting based on the LowMedHigh variable, and then run the report.
Task 5. Cut the calculated column, and then run the report.
