You work in the accounting division at Sugarhouse District Theatre, where touring Broadway plays and musicals are performed. You started a worksheet that lists the number of seats in each section (orchestra and the tiers) and the number of seats sold for a specific performance date. You will calculate the percentage of sold and unsold seats and gross revenue by section. You will format the worksheet to improve readability and copy the final worksheet to use as a template to enter data for the next day’s performance.
Start Excel. Download and open the file named Exp19_Excel_Ch01_Cap_TicketSales.xlsx. Grader has automatically added your last name to the beginning of the filename.
Centering the title Sugarhouse District Theatre over the data columns, increasing the font size, and applying a different font color will make it stand out as a title.
Merge and center the title over the range A1:G1, change the font size to 20, and apply Purple font color.
You want the performance date to display, including the weekday, centered below the title.
Type 4/16/2021 in cell A2, apply the Long Date number format (which includes the day of the week), apply the Note cell style, and merge and center the date over the range A2:G2.
Now that you have formatted the worksheet, you need to select margin settings so that any printouts you make will look professional.
Set a 1″ top margin and center the worksheet horizontally between the left and right margins.
Insert a footer with the text Exploring Series on the left side, the sheet name code in the center, and the file name code on the right side.
You want to insert a new row for Orchestra Back.
Insert a new row above row 9, between Right and Left. The new row is row 9. Copy the data from cell A5 to cell A9 and change the data in cell A9 from Front to Back.
Indenting the specific seating sections will distinguish the specific section locations from the main section headings. After indenting text, the column needs to be widened to display the text.
Indent twice the data in the ranges A6:A8, A10:A12, and A14:A17. Then change the width of column A to 18.
The column heading in cell A4 is formatted. You want to copy those formats to the other headings on row 4.
Use Format Painter to copy the formats in cell A4 to the range B4:G4.
Wrapping text within each cell will improve the readability of the column headings.
Wrap text and horizontally center the labels in the range A4:G4 and set the height of row 4 to 30.
You decided to change the word Purchased to the word Sold.
Use Find and Replace to find all occurrences of Purchased and replace them with Sold.
The worksheet contains spelling errors that need to be corrected.
Check the spelling in the worksheet and correct all spelling errors.
Enter the formula to calculate the percentage of seats sold for the performance.
Calculate the Percentage Sold in cell E6 by dividing the Seats Sold by the Seats in Section. Copy the formula to the range E7:E17. Delete the formula in cells E9 and E13 since those are empty rows.
Enter the formula to calculate the percentage of seats not sold.
Calculate the Percentage Not Sold in cell F6 by subtracting the Percentage Sold from 1. Copy the formula to the range F7:F17. Delete the formula in cells F9 and F13 since those are empty rows
Enter the formula to calculate the gross revenue from the seats that were sold.
Calculate the Gross Revenue in cell G6 by multiplying the Seats Sold by the Price Per Seat. Copy the formula to the range G7:G17. Delete the formula in cells G9 and G13 since those are empty rows.
Formatting the monetary values in the Price Per Seat and Gross Revenue columns improves the readability.
Apply Accounting Number Format with zero decimal places to the ranges D6:D17 and G6:G17.
The formula results in the Percentage Sold and Percentage Not Sold columns are hard to read as decimal values. Formatting the results to display percent symbols will improve the readability.
Apply Percentage Style with one decimal place to the range E6:F17.
After reviewing the data, you decide to move the Price Per Seat to be to the left of the Gross Revenue data.
Insert a new column G. Select and move the range D4:D17 to the range G4:G17. Delete the empty column D.
You want to center the values in the Seats in Section and Seats Sold columns.
Center horizontally the data in the range B6:C17. Apply Align Right and indent twice the data in the range D6:E17.
Borders will help people distinguish different seating sections.
Apply Outside Borders to the range A4:G4, the range A5:G8, A9:G12, and A13:G17 one range at a time.
Rename Sheet 1 as 4-16-2021. Copy the worksheet, place the duplicate to the right, and rename it as 4-17-2021.
You want to use the duplicate worksheet to be ready to enter data for the April 17 performance data.
Change the date in cell A2 to 4/17/2021. Keep the Long Date Format. Delete the values in the range C6:C17.
