Summary: For this second part of generating reports, I start as usual by walking through the steps of creating a general report. This report shows all the items in the inventory. Then we decide that we need to show only the items inventoried this month. To do so, we looked at the filters for this report. We added an expression (one that retrieves the month from all the row’s date inventoried column) and compare it (equal) to the value (the month of today’s date). That way we can add any sorts of conditions and expressions to generate many different kinds of reports.
Please note that the full code is provided in this final course video.
