Exp19 Excel Ch11 ML1 Internships
As the Internship Director for a regional university, you created a list of students who are currently in this semester’s internship program. You have some final touches to complete the worksheet, particularly in formatting text. In addition, you want to create an advanced filter to copy a list of senior accounting students. Finally, you want to insert summary statistics and create an input area to look up a student by ID to display his or her name and major.
You want to extract the last four digits of the student’s ID.
#In cell B2 on the Students sheet, extract the last four digits of the first student’s ID using the RIGHT function. Copy the function from cell B2 to the range B3:B42.
Hint: Formula is =RIGHT(Student ID, 4)
#After extracting the last four digits of the ID, you want to align the data.
#Apply center horizontal alignment to the range B2:B42.
Hint: The Home tab contains alignment options.
#The first and last names are combined in column C. You want to separate the names into two columns.
Convert the text in the range C2:C42 into two columns using a space as the delimiter.
Hint: Text to Columns is located on the Data tab.
#You want to convert the text in column F to upper and lowercase letters.
#Use a text function in cell G2 to convert the text in cell F2 into upper and lowercase letters. Copy the function to the range G3:G42.
Hint: Formula is =PROPER(Major)
#Now that you have converted text from uppercase to upper and lowercase, you will hide the column containing the majors in all capital letters.
Hide column F.
Hint: The Home tab contains an option to hide a column.
You want to create a criteria range for the dataset.
#Create a criteria range by copying the range A1:I1 and pasting it in cell A44. Create conditions
for Senior Accounting majors on row 45 and an OR condition for Junior Accounting majors in the respective cells on row 46
You are ready to perform the advanced filter.
#Create an output range by copying the range A44:I44 to cell A48. Perform the advanced filter by copying data to the output range. Use the appropriate ranges for list range, criteria range, and output range
Hint: The Data tab contains the option to perform an advanced filter.
On the Info worksheet, you want to insert a database function based on conditions.
#Display the Info worksheet and insert the DSUM function in cell B2 to calculate the total tuition for junior and senior accounting students. Use the range A1:I42 for the database, Tuition for the field, and the criteria range.
You want to insert database functions to perform calculations.
In cell B3, insert the DAVERAGE function to calculate the average GPA for junior and senior accounting students on the Students worksheet. Use mixed references in the ranges.
You want to identify the highest GPAs for junior and senior accounting majors.
In cell B4, insert the DMAX function to identify the highest GPA for junior and senior accounting students on the Students worksheet. Use mixed references in the ranges.
In cell B5, insert the DMIN function to identify the lowest GPA for junior and senior accounting students on the Students worksheet. Use mixed references in the ranges.
In cell B6, insert the DCOUNT function to count the number of junior and senior accounting
students on the Students worksheet. Use mixed references in the ranges.
In cell B9, insert the DGET function to retrieve the last name of the student who has the ID listed in cell A9. Use the column number representing the Last Name column for the field argument and use the criteria range A8:A9. Edit the function to make the column letters absolute. Copy the DGET function from cell B9 to cell C9. Edit the field number to represent the GPA column.
You want to format the results of the database functions.
Format the range B3:B6 with Comma Style. Decrease the number of decimal places to zero
for cell B6.
You want to identify the location of a particular ID.
Insert the MATCH function in cell B13 to identify the position of the ID stored in cell B12. Use
the range A2:A42 in the Student’s worksheet as the lookup_array argument and look for exact
Insert the INDEX function in cell B14 with Students!A$2:I$42 as the array, B$13 that contains the MATCH function as the row number, and 4 as the column number. Copy the function from cell B14 to cell B15. Edit the function to change the column number to 7.
Change the ID in cell B12 to 11282378. The results of the MATCH and INDEX functions
You want to insert a function to display other functions as text.
Insert the FORMULATEXT function in cell D2 to display the formula that is stored in cell B2.
Copy the function to the range D3:D6 and to the range D13:D15. In cell D8, insert the
FORMULATEXT function to display the function that is stored in cell B9, and in cell D9, insert
the FORMULATEXT function to display the function that is stored in cell C9.
Increase the width of column D to 50.
Create a footer with your name on the left side, the sheet name code in the center, and the file name code on the right side on all sheets.
