· Open the file SC_EX19_5a_FirstLastName_1.xlsx, available for download from the SAM website.
· Save the file as SC_EX19_5a_FirstLastName_2.xlsx by changing the “1” to a “2”.
o If you do not see the .xlsx file extension in the Save As dialog box, do not type it. The program will add the file extension for you automatically.
· To complete this SAM Project, you will also need to download and save the following data files from the SAM website onto your computer:
· With the file SC_EX19_5a_FirstLastName_2.xlsx still open, ensure that your first and last name is displayed in cell B6 of the Documentation sheet.
o If cell B6 does not display your name, delete the file and download a new copy from the SAM website.
Olivia Clausen is a product analyst for Media
Hub, a website that sells audio books, movies, TV shows, and other media around
the world. Olivia is tracking sales for the year and asks for your help in
projecting future sales and visualizing the sales data.
The United States, Canada, and Australia worksheets have the same structure and contain similar data. Group the United States, Canada, and Australia worksheets to make changes to the three worksheets at the same time. The first change is to display today's date.
In cell H1 of the United States worksheet, enter a formula using the TODAY function to display today's date.
2. Find the text "Science fantasy" and then change it to Science fiction to use the more common term.
3. Use the month name in cell H5 to fill the range I5:O5 with the names of the remaining months in the year.
4. Olivia wants to use the cell formatting in merged cell H6 in other places in the workbook. Create and apply a cell style as follows:
a. Create a cell style named Subhead based on the formatting in merged cell H6.
b. Apply the new Subhead cell style to cell H8.
Olivia thinks Media Hub has a good chance of
increasing the number of audio book downloads in the United States to 14,000 in
December. For May, she estimates 11,432 downloads, which is the average number
of monthly downloads from January to April.
Project the number of downloads in June to November by filling the series for the first projection (range H7:O7) with a linear trend.
Olivia also wants to know how the number of
downloads would increase if customers downloaded 3% more audio books each month
from June to December.
Project the number of downloads in June to December for the second projection (range H9:O9) based on a growth series using 1.03 as the step value.
Olivia wants to consolidate the sales data in
the United States, Canada, and Australia on the All Locations worksheet.
Ungroup the worksheets, go to the All Locations worksheet, and then consolidate the data as follows:
a. In cell B6, enter a formula using the SUM function and a 3D reference to total the number of downloads of Adventure audio books in January (cell B6) in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
b. Copy the formula in cell B6 to calculate the number of downloads for the other types of books and months (ranges B7:B11 and C6:E11), pasting the formula only.
c. In cell B16, enter a formula using the SUM function and a 3D reference to total the sales of Adventure audio books in January (cell B16) in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
d. Copy the formula in cell B16 to calculate the sales for the other types of books and months (ranges B17:B21 and C16:E21), pasting the formula only.
8. Olivia wants to round the total sales values so that they are easier to remember.
a. In cell B22, add the ROUNDUP function to display the total sales for January rounded up to 0 decimal places.
b. Fill the range C22:F22 with the formula in cell B22.
9. In cell F24, Olivia wants to display the total sales from the previous year for the same period. This data is stored in another workbook. Insert the total as follows:
a. Open the file Support_EX19_5a_Sales.xlsx.
b. In cell F24 of Olivia's workbook, insert a formula using an external reference to cell F22 in the All Locations worksheet in the Support_EX19_5a_Sales.xlsx workbook.
Olivia wants to visualize how the sales of each
type of audio book contributed to the total sales for January to April.
Create a chart as follows to illustrate this information:
a. Create a 3-D pie chart that shows how each type of book (range A16:A21) contributed to the total sales (range F16:F21).
b. Move and resize the chart so that the upper-left corner is in cell B25 and the lower-right corner is in cell F40.
