Project Goal






Sasha Rivera works in the Operations department of the Flex Cab Company, a taxi service in Toronto, Ontario. Flex Cab is exploring the possibility of acquiring other taxi and livery companies in the area. Sasha has collected financial information from the acquisition candidates, but each company has provided data in a different file format. Sasha has asked you to create a comprehensive workbook combining all of the company data. You will need to import the individual data files into an Excel workbook, apply formatting changes, and create graphics to help Sasha better analyze the data.



·         Download the following file from the SAM website:

o    SC_Excel2013_C7_P1a_FirstLastName_1.xlsx

·         Open the file you just downloaded and save it with the name:

o    SC_Excel2013_C7_P1a_FirstLastName_2.xlsx

o    Hint: If you do not see the .xlsx file extension in the Save file dialog box, do not type it. Excel will add the file extension for you automatically.

·         To complete this Project, you will also need to download and save the following support files from the SAM website:

o    support_SC_E13_C7_P1a_Bryant.jpg

o    support_SC_E13_C7_P1a_Harrington.jpg

o    support_SC_E13_C7_P1a_East_York.jpg

o    support_SC_E13_C7_P1a_FastTrak.jpg

o    support_SC_E13_C7_P1a_Harrington.txt

o    support_SC_E13_C7_P1a_FastTrak.accdb

·         With the file SC_Excel2013_C7_P1a_FirstLastName_2.xlsx still open, ensure that your first and last name is displayed in cell B6 of the Documentation sheet. If cell B6 does not display your name, delete the file and download a new copy from the SAM website.

10.         Use the Format Painter to copy the formatting of range B12:G19 to range B2:G8 in the Bryant Bros worksheet.

12.         Change the width of columns C:G to 11 characters.

13.         Use the Convert Text to Columns Wizard to convert the text in cells B15:B18 to columns. Use a space as the column delimiter. (Tip: You may need to deselect the comma delimiter you used when importing data in step 11.)

14.         Select the range C15:F18 and use the Quick Analysis Tool to create formulas that will total the values in each column of that range. The formulas should use the SUM function and should appear in the range C19:F19.

15.         Go to the East York worksheet and, using the Find and Replace command, replace all instances of the word Quarter with the letter Q. (Hint: You should make 4 replacements.)

16.         Select the range C5:G8 and use the Quick Analysis tool to add a conditional formatting rule to the range. The conditional formatting rule should identify the East York Taxi’s Top 10% revenues over the period of 2012-2016.

c.    Change the width of columns C:G to 11.00 characters.

d.    For cells B4:G4 and B5:B8, apply Bold formatting and center-align cell contents.

(Hint: If you receive an error message indicating the numbers in the range C4:G4 are stored as text, select the range C4:G4, click the Error Message arrow, and then click the Convert to Number option.)

21.         Apply the Accounting Number format with no decimal places to the range C5:G8. (Hint: The format listed in the Number Format box may appear as Custom rather than Accounting after you decrease the decimal places.)

22.         Select the range B14:F18 and use the Quick Analysis tool to insert a Clustered Column chart. Move the Clustered Column chart to a new chart sheet named 2016 FastTrak Revenues by Area. Make the following formatting changes to the chart:

a.    Change the chart style to Style 6.

b.    Update the Chart title to 2016 FastTrak Revenues by Area.

c.    Add a Primary Vertical Axis Title with the text Dollars.
