You have recently become the CFO for Beta Manufacturing, a small cap company that produces auto parts. As you step into your new position, you have decided to compile a report that details all aspects of the business, including: employee tax withholding, facility management, sales data, and product inventory. To complete the task, you will duplicate existing formatting, utilize various conditional logic functions, complete an amortization table with financial functions, visualize data with PivotTables, and lastly import data from another source.

**Step**

**Instructions**

**Points Possible**

1

Start Excel. Open *eApp_Cap2_Manufacturing.xlsx* and save the workbook as** ACC2343_Final_Manufacturing_LastFirst**.

2

Group all the worksheets in the workbook and fill the range A1:F1 from the Insurance worksheet across all worksheets maintaining the formatting. Ungroup the worksheets after the fill is complete and ensure the Insurance worksheet is active.

Hint: -All worksheet grouped

-Value from range A1:F1 filled across all worksheets

-Same format maintained across all worksheets

-Worksheets ungrouped

3

Click cell I5 and enter a function that determines the number of full-time employees, (**FT**).

Hint: -Function in cell I5 uses the right cells

-Function used the right conditional Count function

4

Enter a function in cell I6 that determines the average salary of all full-time employees. Format the results in Accounting Number Format.

Hint:

Use **DAVERAGE(…….)**.

-Function entered in I6 uses correct cells

-Function calculates average salary of all full-time employees

-Accounting number format applied to result

5

Enter a lookup function in cell E5 that returns the tax deduction amount for the number of dependents listed in the cell C5. Use the table in range H13:I17 to complete the function. The maximum deduction is $500.00; therefore, employees with more than four dependents will

receive no additional deductions.

Hint: -Used suggested type of Lookup function (VLOOKUP) to return correct value.

-Absolute cell reference, and relative cell reference must be used in their places to get the complete marks here.

6

Use Auto Fill to copy the function down, completing column E. Be sure to use the appropriate cell referencing. Format the data in column E with the Accounting Number Format.

Hint: -Auto fill used to copy function down column

-Appropriate cell referencing (absolute cell reference, and relative cell reference must be used in their places to get the complete marks here)

-Data in column E formatted with Accounting Number format

7

Enter a logical function in cell F5 that calculates employee FICA withholding. If the employee is full-time and has at least one dependent, then he or she pays 7% of the annual salary minus any deductions. All other employees pay 5% of the annual salary minus any deductions. Copy the function down through column F. Format the data in column F with Accounting Number Format.

Hint:

= IF (AND (logical 1, logical 2….))

-Logical function in cell F5 calculate FICA withholding-Full-time (FT) employee with at less 1 dependent pays 7% of the annual salary minus any deductions.

-Other employees pay 5% of the annual salary minus any deductions

-Cell reference I20 and I21 correctly

-Function copied down column F

-Data in column F formatted with Accounting Number format

8

Apply conditional formatting to the range C5:C34 that highlights any dependents that are greater than **3 **with Light Red Fill and Dark Red Text.

Hint:

In the Styles group, click Conditional Formatting.

-Conditional formatting applied to range C5:C34

-Dependents greater than 3 highlighted

-Light Red Fill

Hint:

AVERAGEIFS (average-range, criteria-range1, criteria….)

-AVERAGEIFS function used correctly

-Returns average salary of full-time employees with at least one dependent

-Result formatted with Accounting number format

10

Use Advanced Filtering to restrict the data to only display full-time employees with at least one dependent. Place the results in cell A37. Use the criteria in the range H24:M25 to complete the function.

Hint:

On the Data tab, in the Sort & Filter group, click Advanced.

-Advance filtering used correctly

-Criteria in range H24:M25 used to complete function

Hint:

On the Data tab, in the Forecast group, click What-If Analysis.

-Goal seek used properly

-Monthly payment is reduced to S6000.

-Loan amount in cell E6 changed correctly

12

Create the following three scenarios using Scenario Manager. The scenarios should change the cells B7, B8, and E6.

**Good **

B7 = **.0325**

B8 = **5**

E6 = **275000**

**Most Likely**

B7 = **.057**

B8 = **5**

E6 = **312227.32**

**Bad**

B7 = **.0700**

B8 = **3**

E6 = **350000**

Create a Scenario Summary Report based on the value in cell B6. Format the new report appropriately.
