Excel Project 1 – MS Excel (Spring 2021)

 Note: Microsoft Office 365, the online version, is not appropriate for the course. But anyone who has an Office 365 subscription has access to a fully functioning downloadable version of Office 2013 or 2016 If you do not have an Office 365 subscription you may download the 2016 or 2019 version of Microsoft Office Professional Plus or Microsoft Office Home & Business from OntheHub. (See the Course Resources link.)

If you are using a Chromebook, the only Excel product available from the Google Play Store is not a full version of Excel and cannot be used to complete the steps in our Excel projects (it is missing about 30% of the normal Excel functions). The Chromebook will not allow you to download the full Excel from

   UMGC 365.

If you are using a Chromebook, you can complete the Excel Projects using the online Virtual Lab option. In LEO, under Content, Virtual Lab Access, you’ll find instructions for accessing the virtual lab.

Use the following project description to complete this activity (all the details are included in this document, in the 22 steps below).

Summary

Create a Microsoft Excel workbook with four worksheets that provides extensive use of Excel capabilities including charting, and written analysis and recommendations in support of a business enterprise.

A large rental car company has two metropolitan locations, one at the airport and another centrally located in downtown. It has been operating since 2018 and each location summarizes its rental car revenue

quarterly. Both locations rent four classes of cars: economy, premium, hybrid, SUV. Rental revenue is maintained separately for the four classes of rental vehicles.

The data for this case resides in the file 2021rentalcars.txt and can be downloaded by clicking on the Assignments tab, then on the data file name. It is a text file (with the file type .txt).

Do not create your own data. You must use the data provided and only the data provided.

Default Formatting. All labels, text, and numbers will be Arial 10, There will be $ and comma and decimal point variations for numeric data, but Arial 10 will be the default font and font size.

      1

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

a. “Student’s LastFirstInitial Name Excel Project 1” Example: SmithJaneP Excel Project 1.

b. Set Page Layout Orientation to Landscape.

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

        3

    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).

        Format for column A:

• Arial 10 point

• Normal font

• Right-align all

four labels in the cells

  

           Step

       Requirement

In the Analysis by worksheet with all entries in column C:

a. Enter the appropriate values for your Name (in cell C1), Class and Section, Project, Date Due across from the appropriate label in column A.

b. Use the formatting in the Comments column (to the right).

It may be necessary to adjust the column width, so the four labels are clearly visible and are clearly visible within Column C (not extending into Column D).

    Format for column C:

• Arial 10 point

• Bold

• Left-align all four

values in the cells

      5

    a. Create new worksheets:

Data, Sorted, and Airport.

Upon completion, there should be Analysis by as well as the three newly created worksheets.

b. Delete any other worksheets.

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.

          6

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

      7

    After clicking on the blank cell A1 (to select it) in the Data worksheet, import the text file 2021rentalcars.txt into the Data worksheet. In Excel 2019/365 this is done via the Data tab, Get & Transform Data: Click ‘From Text/CSV’ and follow the prompts. If you are using an earlier version of Excel, you can find additional instructions under Additional Tutorials for Excel 2013/2016, Importing a Text File into Excel (Excel 2016 or earlier). The data should begin in Column A. Row 1 should contain the labels for each Column.

It will 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 the comma (thousands separator). Note: in the Currency format there is NO space between the $ and the first numeric character that follows the $.

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. Then change the name of the new worksheet with the imported data as “Data”. Make sure worksheets are in the correct order per Item 6.

        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.

In the Data worksheet:

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

(Office

 2019/365 may have automatically created an Excel Table when you

 imported the data)

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

              9

              10

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).

c. Adjust column widths if necessary, to ensure all data and field

names are readable with no truncation.

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 Data worksheet:

Create an Excel table with the recently imported data.

.

a. 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).

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

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

d. Ensure the table has headers.

e. Ensure that Header Row and Banded Rows are selected in the

Table Style Options Group Box, but do NOT select a Total row.

a. Copy the entire table from the Sorted worksheet to the Airport worksheet. In the Airport worksheet, the field names should be in row 1 and the Year column should be in column A.

b. Some column adjustments may be necessary so that the field names as well as the data is all legible.

c. Make sure that the same format requirements for the Data Worksheet are met in the Airport Worksheet.

    Ensure all cells with data are selected.

Format:

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

Arial 10 point.

      12

    In the Airport worksheet:

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

Downtown.

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

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

        Delete the rows from the Excel table, NOT just the data.

      13

  In the Airport worksheet, using a custom sort:

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

b. then by Year (Ascending),

c. then by Quarter (Ascending).

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

separate steps.

Note: If the sort does not result in sequential row listing of all cars of the same class, the ranges (Step 15) will be difficult to create as well as to evaluate.

      14

  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. This column must be the next column to the right of the NumCars column, the column heading should be in Cell G1.

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) with no space between the $ and the first number following it. When you are clicking on cells to construct a formula in cell G2, while you may be expecting to see is =E2/F2 what may appear in the cell editor is =[@Revenue]/[@NumCars] or =[Revenue]/[NumCars], the last two formulas the 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).

  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 with no space between the $ and the 1.

• Revenue and NumCars format from Data Worksheet.

Defined Avg Rev Ranges

AE is Airport Economy, AH is Airport Hybrid, AP is Airport Premium, AS is Airport SUV.

   Note: Do not sort (step 13) after creating named ranges as cell

 contents are typically moved during a sort but the assigned cell

 locations in named ranges are not modified, changed, or updated.

              16

In the Airport worksheet:

a. In row 1, two or three columns to the right of the AvgRev column:

b. Create a label in row 1 called Average Quarterly Revenue per Economy Car (Airport).

c. Immediately (same column, next row down, row 2) under the Economy label create a label called Average Quarterly Revenue per Hybrid Car (Airport).

d. Immediately (same column, next row down, row 3) under the Hybrid Car label, create a label called Average Quarterly Revenue per Premium Car (Airport).

e. Immediately (same column, next row down, row 4) under the Premium label, create a label called Average Quarterly Revenue per SUV (Airport).

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

Format:

• Arial 10 point • Bold

• Left-justified

              17

In the Airport worksheet:

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 (AQR) for the Label-indicated carclass for each of the four carclasses.

b. Use the average function and the named range (AE, AH, AP, or AS) ONLY NOT a range of cells.

Ensure each of four averages is Currency format with two decimal places preceded by a $ with no spaces between the $ and the first number.

Format:

• Arial 10 point

• Normal

• Currency ($ and two

decimal places).

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

      In the Airport worksheet:

a. Create a range named AE that includes every AvgRev value for all Economy cars.

b. Create a range named AH that includes every AvgRev value for all Hybrid cars.

c. Create a range named AP that includes every AvgRev value for all Premium cars.

d. Create a range named AS that includes every AvgRev value for all SUV cars.

      In the Airport worksheet:

        In the AvgRev column, use conditional formatting to identify all

 18

AvgRev values where the AvgRev is greater than (>) the Average

 Quarterly Revenue FOR THAT CARCLASS calculated in Item 17

 above. DO NOT USE the calculated AQR number in the conditional

 formatting rule. Instead, use the absolute cell reference where that

 Average Quarterly Revenue value is stored so that if either

 Revenue or NumCars change in a particular row the conditional

 formatting will be based on the updated value for Average

 Quarterly Revenue. The result will be four conditional formatting

 rules using the values calculated for each of the four classes in step

 17.

Format:

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

  In the Airport worksheet:

a. Create a column or bar type of chart that clearly shows the

average revenue (AvgRev) for Hybrid vehicles for 2018 to

2019 by quarter in time-wise sequence.

b. Provide an internal chart title that explains what is

portrayed on the chart. The year and the quarter must be

included in the chart for clarity.

c. Place the chart one or two rows below the four labels and

left-aligned in the same column where the four Average Quarterly Revenue labels begin.

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

      20

  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 2019 quarters.

b. Provide an internal chart title that explains what is portrayed on the chart. The two chart titles should be similar (except for the text difference in

carclasses).

c. Place the chart two or three rows below the first chart and positioned 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.

      For the questions below, present your answers in a very readable format left-aligned with and one or two rows beneath the lower chart. You can type your answer in one cell, then highlight and select several rows and columns, selecting merge cells and selecting Wrap Text. Change the text from Center to Left justification. Do NOT widen the columns as this will adversely impact the appearance of the worksheet. 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.

      21

    Question 1: Based on the hybrid AvgRev chart above, is there a trend? In addition to the yes or no response, explain (give reasons) for the trend or why there is not a trend to be observed.

Label your response Question 1. Answer this question in 2 to 3 sentences left-aligned with and under the lower chart. DO NOT change your spreadsheet. Just respond to the question.
