IFSM 201 Excel Project 3 (Rental Car Company) (July 2019 Data) Latest Guide

Summary

Create a Microsoft Excel file with four worksheets that provides extensive use of Excel capabilities for graphing. The graphs 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 Excel Project 3-data.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.
 
Element Requirement Points Allocated Comments # 1 1 - Open Excel and save a blank worksheet with the following name: 0.2 Use Print Preview to review how spreadsheet would print. a.“Student’s First InitialLast Name Excel Project 1” Example: JSmith Excel Project 1 b. Set Page Layout to Landscape
 
2 Change the name of the worksheet to Analysis by. 0.1
 
3 a. In the Analysis by worksheet, enter the four labels vertically in column A in the following order: Name:, Class/Section:, Project:, Date Due: 0.3 Use the following text format: b. with a row between each label, please note the colon, (:) , after each label. Arial 10 point Bold It may be necessary to adjust the column width so the four labels are clearly visible. Align values Right in the cell
 
4 a. In the Analysis by worksheet, with all entries in column C, enter the appropriate values for Name, Class and Section, Project, Date Due. 0.3 Use the following text format: It may be necessary to adjust the column width so the four labels are clearly visible. Arial 10 point Bold b. formatting Align values left in the cells

6 If necessary, reorder the four worksheets so they are in the following order: Analysis by, Data, Slide 2, Slide 3. 0.1
 
7 a. In the Data worksheet, import the text file Excel Project 3.txt. 0.5 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.
 
8 a. In the Data worksheet, create an Excel table with the recently imported data. 0.6 Some adjustment may be necessary to column widths to insure all field names and all data are readable (not truncated or obscured). b. Pick a style with the styles group to format the table. c. The style should highlight the field names in the first row. d. Ensure NO blank spaces are part of the specified data range.
