Introduction
This project requires you to develop a spreadsheet that tracks the cost of elementary school supplies distributed to teachers over a two-month period. You’ll assume the role of Office Manager, who has multiple responsibilities, including distributing and maintaining classroom supplies. For this project, you must prepare an Excel spreadsheet and chart that will be sent to the school District Manager.
Instructions
1. Start Excel and create a blank workbook.
2. Enter the data shown in the following table and then format, sizing columns as necessary and right-aligning all number values. Save your file, naming it School Supplies.
3. Merge and center cells A1 through H1. Format the school name as Title style.
4. Merge and center cells A2 through H2. Format the label as Heading 1 style.
5. Bold the labels in row 4 and right align the labels above the numeric values.
6. Format the Cost/Unit values as Currency with 2 decimal places. Your spreadsheet should look like the figure below.
7. In column D, enter appropriate formulas to calculate the September costs for each school supply. Your formulas must use cell references. Format the calculated values as Currency with 2 decimal places.
8. In cell A16, enter the label “Grand Total” and format it as bold.
9. In cell D16, enter a formula that uses a function to calculate the total of the column.
10. In column E, enter formulas that calculate the percentage of the grand total for each type of school supply (total cost of each item divided by the grand total). Your formulas must use appropriate absolute cell references. Format the calculated values as Percentage with 0 decimal places.
11. In cell E16, enter a formula that uses a function to calculate the total of the column (it should total 100%).
12. Repeat the process you used in steps 7–11 to calculate values for October.
13. Sort the school supplies alphabetically. (Be sure to select cells A5:H14 to sort the entire row of data.) Your spreadsheet should look similar to the figure below.
Create a Chart
1. Create a chart by first selecting the cell ranges for the chart. Drag from cell A4 to A14 to select the range and then press and hold the Ctrl key while you drag from cell D4 to D14. Continue to press and hold the Ctrl key while dragging from cell G4 to G14. Your selected cells should look like the figure below.
2. Insert a 3-D Clustered Column chart.
3. Change the chart title to read “Cost of Supplies.”
4. Position the chart with the upper-left corner in cell A18 and then size the chart until it extends to column H, as shown in the figure below.
5. Put the following information into cell A41:
