How to Use The Lab Videos

Please do not rely solely on the videos to complete this week’s lab. The videos may not exactly match the official lab instructions, and may not show all the steps required.

For full credit, follow the written instructions on the main iLab page and the linked Step-By-Step guides. Check your work against the screen shots in the written instructions and the Lab and Project Grading Criteria provided in Doc Sharing. The videos can still help you, by showing operations that are similar to, but not exactly the same as, those needed for the lab. Use the videos as a rough visual guide, but not as your only source of directions.

If you have any questions, please post in the Q & A Forum or contact your instructor.

STEP 2: Calculate Values (10 points)

Back to Top

You are to create the formulas needed to calculate the total sales for each item, the profit per item, and the profit based on the number of items sold to date. You will also create a formula to calculate total profit-to-date and the remaining profit needed to make the Marching Band goal for the fundraising campaign.

NOTE: In the data provided, there is no column for sales on 7/6/2006. The band did not do fundraising on that date due to bad weather. You do not need to adjust the dates or add a column for the skipped date; just use the sales data as given. The skipped date will not cause any problems.

In cell C5, enter a formula to calculate profit per item. Profit per item is 50%. Format the cells that hold profit as Currency with two decimal places.

Create a formula to calculate the percentage of profit contributed by the sale of each item. All of the other calculations were based on “relative references.” For example, in cell O5, you created a formula N5 * C5. When you copied the formula to the next row, Excel automatically changed the reference to cell N6 and C6. In this instance, we want to divide the total profit from each item (O5 through O14) by the total profit overall (cell D15). The reference to the item will change, but the reference to the total profit to date will remain the same. We can use an absolute reference to do this. In cell P5, we will enter =O5/$D$15. The dollar signs tell Excel to always reference column D and row 15. Next week, we will learn more about relative and absolute cell referencing.

STEP 5: Apply Conditional Formatting (5 points)

Back to Top

You determine that one measure of how well the company “gets your price” is to set a scale. Excellent performance is at or above the asking price. Good performance is between 95% and 100%. Below 95% is average performance. You will create conditional formatting rules to display graphically the performance level for each sale. Make a copy of the original sales data chart. Name the new sheet Conditional Format.

Download the Lab 3, Step 5 Instructions.

Select the data range and insert a table.

Use Advanced Formatting to set up the following conditional formatting rules for the field Percent of Asking Price.

Greater than or equal to 100% = GREEN

95% to 99.9% = YELLOW

Less than 95% = RED

Use Percent of Asking Price as the Sort Key, and sort by color with green first, then yellow, and then red.

Scenario/Summary

The owner of Bruno’s Pizza, Joe Bruno, wants to evaluate the profitability of his three restaurants before he expands further. He is particularly interested in the comparative results of three dining categories, dine-in, pickup, and delivery. Joe has asked for your help in doing this analysis in return for a small stipend and all the pizza you can eat. You have already prepared a template and distributed it to each restaurant manager, who has entered the sales data for last year. Your next task is to consolidate the data into a single workbook that shows the total sales for each quarter and each dining category. The information should be shown in tabular, as well as graphical formats. You will also create a documentation sheet so that Joe will know exactly what you have created.

iLAB OVERVIEW

Scenario/Summary

Your friend, Jane Morales, is considering opening a Day Care Center. She has started compiling her assumptions and putting together an Income Statement. She has determined that she must make at least $75,000 profit per year in order to start the business. She has asked you to analyze her Income Statement and help her determine whether it is viable for her to start this business. You have agreed to help her complete her Income Statement and to perform What-If analysis to help her look at her potential profitability.

iLAB STEPS

STEP 1: Open Worksheet and Complete the Income Statement (15 points)

Back to Top

Jane needs your help in completing her Income Statement. She has provided the basic assumptions, but you need to provide the calculations that will be used as you perform What-If Analysis.

From Doc Sharing (Lab Materials folder), open wk5_chap8_daycare_income_statement.xlsx. Notice that Jane has provided the basic assumptions concerning her costs and her revenue.

Complete the following calculations:

Revenue

Total Revenue. Multiply tuition per day times number of days by number of children.

Variable Expenses are those expenses that will depend on the number of children served each year. Jane has provided the assumptions. Define annual costs based on the cost per day multiplied by the number of children multiplied by the number of days:

Food Expenses

Supply Expenses

Teacher Cost. Create a VLOOKUP function to determine the annual teacher cost. The Lookup Value is the number of children. The Lookup Table is in cells E3:F7. The Index Column is the second column in the table. You want the closest match. Multiply the LOOKUP function times the annual teacher salary.

Total Variable expenses. This will be the SUM of all of the Variable Expenses (B17:B19).

Summary. Use formulas in these cells because you will wish to change the values in your assumption section to see how these changes impact the Net Income.

Total Revenue should refer to the Total Revenue cell (B14).

Total Expense is Variable Costs + Fixed Costs.

Net Income is Total Revenue – Total Expense

Rename the file Lab6_yourlastname.xlsx.

Your Income Statement should look like the one below, but it is important that you have created formulas rather than typing in amounts. As you perform What-If Analysis, the formulas will be recalculated to show you the results of changing assumptions:

STEP 2: Analyze the Difference in Total Expenses and Net Income When You Vary the Number of Students (10 points)

Back to Top

Download the Lab 6, Step 2 Instructions.

Jane desires to look at the differences in her net income depending on the number of children she cares for. Her house will accommodate no more than 15 children, and she believes she should have no less than 6 children. Because you are varying only one of your assumptions, you can develop a one-variable data table. A one-variable data table will allow you to see the impact of changing one variable–and see the results on multiple outputs.

Set up the Data Table to display number of children from 6 through 15. Add a descriptive title to the Data Table.

Show the Expenses and Net Income for each change in number of children.

Populate the Data Table using the Data Tab, What-If Analysis, Data Table tool.

Apply Conditional Formatting to Net Income that is above $75,000.

Your final Data Table should look something like this:

STEP 3: Analyze the difference in Net Income When You Vary the Number of Students and the Charge per Student (10 points)

Back to Top

Download the Lab 6, Step 3 Instructions.

Jane also wishes to look at the impact on Net Income when she varies the number of students and the charge per student. Use a two-variable data table to analyze.

Set up the Data Table to display number of children as the row input (6–15) and charge per student (35–75 in $5 increments) as the column input.

NOTE: In a Data Table, the information in the top row of the table is called the row input and the information in the first column of the table is called the column input. We usually think of the top row in Excel as a column header and the labels in the first column as row labels, so this may seem a bit confusing. Just remember, in a Data Table, the top row is row input; first column is column input.

Enter Net Income in the result cell, and format this cell to display no data.

Add a descriptive heading.

Create the data table and apply conditional formatting to Net Income values over $75,000.

Your Data Table will look something like this:

Jane wants to look at three scenarios.

Scenario Teacher Salary Supplies Number Tuition

Economy 15,000 25 15 35

Midrange 26,000 60 8 50

High 38,000 100 6 100

She wants to see the Net Income that would be achieved in each Scenario and compare this to her original assumptions.

Name the cells that will be used in the Scenario.

Create the three Scenarios.

Create a Scenario Summary.

Move the Scenario Summary to the end of the workbook.

Once data have been entered into a database, you will want to be able to select and retrieve data. The Query object allows you to select data from your database tables that will answer questions you might have. For example, suppose you had a small fire in your office and you wish to make an insurance claim. Using a query, you will be able to select only those records in the database that have the Location equal to “Office.” Write a query that will allow you to select records based on a room you select.

Use the Create Tab and select Query Wizard. Create a Simple query that selects Item, manufacturer, Model, Serial Number, Purchase Price, Acquired Date, and Location.

In Design View, add the Condition field to the query. Add a Selection Criteria to the Location field so that only those records with the Location equal to Office are displayed.

Save the query as qryItemsbyRoom.
