For a review of the rubric used in grading this exercise, click on the Assignments tab, then on the title “Excel Project 1.” Click on Show Rubrics if the rubric is not already displayed. 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 2015 and each location summarizes its car rental 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 fall2018rentalcars.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. Tutorials Note: Tutorials that address activities used in this project have been assigned in Week 1, 2 and 3. Step Requirement Comments 1 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. Use Print Preview to review how the first worksheet would print. 2 Change the name of the worksheet to Analysis by. 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 Comments 4 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 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 the comma (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 Requirement Comments 8 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. Some adjustment may be necessary to column widths to ensure all field names and all data are readable (not truncated or obscured). 9 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 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). Ensure all the table is selected, NOT just the location column. Format: All data (field names, data text, and data numbers) Arial 10 point. Step Requirement Comments 11 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. b. The field names should remain at the top of the table. c. The remaining data should be for the Airport location. 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. 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. 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). 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. • Revenue and NumCars format from Data Worksheet. Step Requirement Comments 15 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. Defined Avg Rev Ranges AE is
