Using a Database

Back to the example. At this point, you have determined that a film database will make your job easier and might even help preserve your sanity. You create a table with columns for movie title, tag line, release date, and the rest of the required data. You enter your movie list into the table, one row at a time, and are careful to put the correct data in each column.

Next, you instruct the database application to sort the list by movie title. The list is sorted in a second or less, and you print it out. Impressed, you try additional sorts—by rating and by budgeted amount. The results of these sorts are shown in Figures 5.5, 5.6, and 5.7.
