## #Exp19 Excel Ch05 ML2 Fiesta Collection

### Project Description:

Your Aunt Laura has been collecting Fiesta dinnerware, a popular brand from the Homer Laughlin China Company, since 1986. You help her maintain an inventory. So far, you and Aunt Laura have created a table of color numbers, color names, year introduced, and year retired, if applicable. In a second table, you entered color numbers, item numbers, items, current value, and source. Previously, you helped her research current replacement costs; however, you believe the retired colors may be worth more now. Laura is especially interested in the values of retired colors so that she can provide this information for her insurance agent. You will build a PivotTable and add slicers to help her with the analysis

The workbook contains two   related tables. You must create a relationship between these tables so that   you can create a PivotTable using data from both tables.

Create a relationship between the Items table using the Color Number field   and the Colors table using the Color Number field.

Now that the relationship is   built, you are ready to create a PivotTable.

Create a blank PivotTable from within the Items table on the Collection   worksheet to analyze multiple tables. Add the data to the data model. Place   the PivotTable on a new worksheet and name the worksheet Retired   Colors. Name   the PivotTable Retired.

Display the names of both tables   in the PivotTable Fields task pane. Display the Color field as rows and the   sum of the Replacement Value field as values.

Retired colors are often worth   more than currently available colors. Therefore, you want to filter the data   to show only retired colors.

Add a filter to display aggregates for retired colors only using the Retired   field. Note that current colors do not have a retirement date, so you must   filter out the blanks.

Apply the Light Green, Pivot   Style Medium 7. Note, depending on the version of Office used, the style name   may be Pivot Style Medium 7.

In the Retired Colors sheet,   format the values with Accounting Number Format with two decimal places.

In cell B3, create a custom   heading named Replacement Values. Change Row   Labels in cell A3 to Retired Colors.

You want to add a second value   field to display values as percentages of the grant total.

Add a second Replacement Value field below the current field in the Values   area. Select the option to display the values as percentages of the grand   total. Type the custom name Percent of Total.

Add a slicer for the Color   field. Select these colors to display: Apricot, Chartreuse, Lilac, Marigold,   Pearl Gray, and Sapphire.

You want to customize the   slicer.

Apply the Light Green, Slicer Style Light 6 style. Note, depending on the   version of Office used, the style name may be Slicer Style Light 6. Display   three columns within the slicer window. Change the button width to 1.5 inches. Move the slicer so that   the top-left corner starts in cell E2.

A PivotChart will create a   visual illustration of the data in the PivotTable.

Create a clustered column PivotChart and place it on a new chart sheet named Retired
PivotChart.

Now that the PivotChart is   created, you are ready to format it.

Change the chart title to Replacement Value of Retired Items. Change the Lilac data point   fill color to Purple. Change the value axis font size to 11 and apply Black,   Text 1 font color.

Change the category axis font   size to 11 and apply Black, Text 1 font color. Hide the field buttons on the   PivotChart.

On all sheets, 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.

Ensure the worksheets are in the   following order: Color List, Retired PivotChart, Retired Colors, Collection.
