The below screenshot shows the data set that we use for this example.


The Sql query that we used above SSRS example is:

SELECT Geo.[EnglishCountryRegionName] AS [Country]
	,Cust.EnglishOccupation AS Occupation
	,SUM(Fact.SalesAmount) AS Sales
FROM  DimCustomer AS Cust
INNER JOIN FactInternetSales AS Fact ON Cust.CustomerKey = Fact.CustomerKey
INNER JOIN [DimGeography] AS Geo ON Cust.GeographyKey = Geo.GeographyKey
GROUP BY Geo.[EnglishCountryRegionName],Cust.EnglishOccupation
