Requirement

Open Excel and save a blank workbook with the following name:

a. “Student’s First InitialLast Name Excel Project 1” Example: JSmith Excel Project 1.

b. Set Page Layout Orientation to Landscape.

Change the name of the worksheet to Analysis by.

In the Analysis by worksheet:

a. Beginning in Row 1, enter the four labels in column A(one label per row) in the following order:Name:, Class/Section:, Project:, Date Due:

b. Place a blank row between each label. Please note the colon : after each label.

c. Align the labels to the right side in the cells

It may be necessary to adjust the column width so the four labels are clearly visible within Column A (not extending into Column B).


Comments

Use Print Preview to review how the first worksheet would print.

Format for column A:

• Arial 10 point

• Normal font

• Right-align all four labels in the cells

7


Note: The three new worksheets might not have Arial 10 point as the default type so it may be necessary to change the font and point to Arial 10 for the new worksheets.

If necessary, reorder the four worksheets so they are in the following order: Analysis by, Data, Sorted, Airport.

After clicking on the blank cell A1 (to select it) in the Data worksheet, import the text file fall2018rentalcars.txt into the Data worksheet. The data should begin in Column A, Row 1.

Though the intent is to import the text file into the Data worksheet, sometimes when text data is imported into a worksheet, a new worksheet is created. If this happens, delete the blank Data worksheet, and then rename the new worksheet which HAS the recently imported data as “Data.” It may be necessary to change Revenue data to Currency format ($ and comma (thousands separators)) with NO decimal points, and to change NumCars data to number format, with NO decimal points, but with thecomma (thousands separator) because of the import operation.

This may or may not occur, but in case it does it needs to be corrected. Adjust all column widths so there is no data or column header truncation.


Format:

all data (field names, data text, and data numbers)

• Arial 10 point.

The field names should be in the top row of the worksheet with the data directly under it in rows. This action may not be necessary as this is part of the Excel table creation process. The data should begin in column A.


Step

8


Requirement

In the Data worksheet:

a. Create an Excel table with the recently imported data.

b. Pick a style with the styles group to format the table (choose a style that shows banded rows, i.e., rows that alternate between 2 colors).

c. The style should highlight the field names in the first row.

d. Ensure NO blank cells are part of the specified data range.

e. Ensure the table has headers.

f. Ensure that Header Row and Banded Rows are selected in the Table Style Options Group Box, but do NOT select a Total row.

In the Data worksheet:


Comments

Some adjustment may be necessary to column widths to ensure all field names and all data are readable (not truncated or obscured).

a. Select the entire table (data and headers) using a mouse.

b. Copy the table to the Sorted worksheet.

c. The upper left-hand corner of the header/data in Sorted should be in cell A1.

d. Adjust columns widths if necessary to ensure all data and field names are readable.

e. Make sure that all the format requirements for the Data Worksheet are met in the Sorted Worksheet

In the Sorted worksheet:

a. Select all the cells with data in the table (including the header row.

b. Sort the data by location (ascending).


Ensure all the table is selected, NOT just the location column.

Format:

All data (field names, data text, and data numbers)

Arial 10 point.

In the Airport worksheet:

a. Delete all the rows in the table where the data is for Downtown.

b. The field names should remain at the top of the table.

c. The remaining data should be for the Airport location.

In the Airport worksheet, using a custom sort:

a. Sort all the data first by CarClass (Ascending),

b. thenby Year (Ascending),

c. thenby Quarter (Ascending).

In the Airport worksheet:

a. Add a new column heading AvgRev for the column where the average revenue per car for each row will be calculated and displayed.

b. Add a formula to calculate the AvgRev by dividing the contents of the Revenue cell by the contents of the NumCars cell for each data row in the table

c. The AvgRev values format is currency (a $ and two decimal points). When you are clicking on cells to construct a formula in cell G2, while you may be expecting to see E2/F2 what may appear in the cell editor is @Revenue/@NumCars, a result of using an Excel table.

d. Column adjustment may be needed to ensure both the title and the data is visible.

e. Apply the formatting instructions in the Comments column (next column at right).


Ensure that all cells with data have been selected before sorting. This sort is completed in a single step, not 3 separate steps.

The format of the table must be extended to the new column.

Format:

• Arial 10 point

• data values for AvgRev are Currency Format (using the Format Cells option). A typical AvgRev value could be $123.45, for instance.

Quarterly Revenue per Hybrid Car (Airport).

d. Immediately (same column, next row down) under the Hybrid Car label, create a label called Average

Quarterly Revenue per Premium Car (Airport).

e. Immediately (same column, next row down) under the Hybrid label, create a label called Average

Quarterly Revenue per SUV (Airport).

f. Apply the formatting instructions in the Comments column (next column, at right).

In the first fully visible cell to the right of the of the widest of the four labels so that all four values are in the same column aligned with the appropriate row for the specified carclass:

a. Calculate the Average Quarterly Revenue (AvgRev) for the Label-indicated carclass for each of the four carclasses.

b. Use the average function and the named range

c. Ensure each of four averages is Currency format with two decimal places preceded by a $.


Format:

• Arial 10 point

Bold

Left-justified

Format:

• Arial 10 point

• Normal

• Currency ($ and two decimal places).

Truncation (cut off) of any of the four labels is not acceptable.


18


In the Airport worksheet:

Use conditional formatting to identify all AvgRev values where the AvgRev is more than 5% greater than the AvgRev FOR THAT CARCLASS calculated in Item 17 above. DO NOT USE the calculated AvgRev number, instead USE the cell contents of the AvgRev value so that if either Revenue or NumCars change in a particular row that the conditional formatting is based on the updated value for Average Quarterly Revenue.


Format:

The highlighted AvgRev cell should be Green Fill with Dark Green Text.


Step

Requiremen

t

In the Airport worksheet:

a. Create a column or bar type of chart that clearly shows the average revenue (AvgRev) for Hybrid vehicles for 2015 to 2017 by quarter.

b. Provide an internal chart title that explains what

is portrayed on the chart. The year and the

19 quarter must be included in the chart for clarity.

c. Place the chart one or two rows below and the left margin left-aligned in the same column where the Average Quarterly Revenue labels begin.


Comments

You will have ten bars in your chart, one for each quarter. Each bar represents the average revenue per hybrid car for ten quarters – airport location only.


In the Airport Worksheet:

a. Create a column or bar type of chart that clearly shows the average revenue (AvgRev) for Premium (carclass) vehicles for the four 2015 quarters.

b. Provide an internal chart title that explains what is

20 portrayed on the chart. The two chart titles should be similar (except for the text difference in carclasses).

c. Place the chart left-aligned with the first chart and two or three rows below the first chart so that left sides of the two charts are in alignment.


You will have four bars in your chart, one for each quarter. Each bar represents the average revenue per premium car for four quarters – airport location only.


Step

Requirement

Comments

For the questions below, present your answers in a very readable format left-aligned with and one or two rows beneath the chart. You can type your answer in one cell, then highlight and select several rows and columns, selecting merge cells and selecting Wrap Text. Do NOT widen the columns as this will adversely impact the appearance of the worksheet items above. You will want to change the text from Center to Left justification. Play with this a bit. If you simply type your answer on a single line in that will also be ok.

But be sure the entire answer can be read without the reader having to change any formatting. Reading the answer in the cell editor is NOT acceptable, the answer must be visible in the worksheet itself.
