Excel Project 3 – MS Excel Summer 2018

Use the project description HERE to complete this activity. For a review of the complete rubric used in grading this exercise, click on the Assignments tab, then on the title Excel Project #3. Click on Show Rubrics if the rubric is not already displayed.

Summary

Create a Microsoft Excel file with four worksheets that provides extensive use of Excel capabilities for charting. The charts will be copied into a Microsoft PowerPoint file and the student will develop appropriate findings and recommendations based on analysis of the data.

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 two classes of cars: economy and premium. Rental revenue is maintained separately for the two classes of rental vehicles.

The data for this case resides in the file summer2018rentalcars.txt and can be downloaded by clicking on the Assignments tab, then on the data tile 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 First InitialLast Name Excel Project 3” Example: JSmith Excel Project 3

b. Set Page Layout Orientation to Landscape

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

2 Change the name of the worksheet to Analysis by. 0.1

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.

0.3

Format for text in column

A:

• Arial 10 point

• Normal font

• Right-align all four

labels in the cells

4

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

a. Enter the appropriate values for your Name, 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).

• Bold

• Left-align all four

values in the cells

5

a. Create three new worksheets: Data, Slide 2, Slide 3. Upon completion, there must be the Analysis by worksheet as well as the three newly created worksheets.

b. Delete any other worksheets.

0.2

6

After clicking on the blank cell A1 (to select it) in the Data worksheet:

a. Import the text file summer2018rentalcars.txt into the Data worksheet.

b. Adjust all column widths so there is no data or column

header truncation.

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 (leading $ and 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.

0.3

Format for all data (field

names, data text, and data

numbers)

• Arial 10 point.

• Normal font

The field names must 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 must begin in Column A..

7

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 must highlight the field names in the first row. These are your table headers.

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

e. Ensure that Header Row and Banded Rows are selected in the Table Style Options Group Box. Do

NOT check the Total Row.

0.5

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

8

In the Data worksheet, a. Sort the entire table by Year (Ascending). b. Delete rows that contain 2015 data as well as 2017

data. The resulting table must consist of Row 1 labels followed by 2016 data, with NO empty cells or rows within the table.

Add a relevant graphic that enhances the recommendations and conclusions on slide 4. If a photo is used, be sure to cite the source. The source citation must be no larger than Font size of 6, so it does not distract from the content of the slide.

Create a footer using “Courtesy of Your Name” so that is shows on all slides including the Title Slide. The text in this footer must be on the left side of the slides IF the theme selected allows. Otherwise let the theme determine the position of this text.

0.2 Replace the words “Your Name” with your actual name.

Create a footer for automated Slide Numbers that appears on all slides except the Title Slide. The page number must be on the right side of the slides IF the theme selected allows. Otherwise let the theme determine the position of the page number. Ensure that your name does appear on every slide, but the page numbers start on slide #2. This will involve slightly different steps to accomplish both.

Depending upon the theme you have chosen, the page number or your name may not appear in the lower portion of the slide. That is ok, as long as both appear somewhere on the slides.

22 Apply a transition scheme to all slides. 0.1

One transition scheme may be used OR different schemes for different slides

23 Apply an animation on at least one slide. The animation may be applied to text or a graphic.
