Module 8 assignment: excel controls practice admg 302 | ADMG 302 | Central Washington University

     

The following is a two-part assignment 1)   update the excel workbook, and 2) write a 1-page reflection.

Your coworker asked you to update and   protect the Second-Hand Auto Dealers data input workbook so that they could   send it to the Seattle dealership for use in maintaining and purchasing   inventory. For this workbook to be ready for use by the dealership, you will   need to complete the following. 

 

1.

Download and save the Excel workbook titled   CH_5_Excel_Cars_Template and save it as CH_5_Excel_Cars_YourFirstandLastName.

 

2.

You will utilize the tab titled Data Validation to create a   Data Validation spreadsheet. You will need to provide data for each of the   lookup categories for the Data Input spreadsheet. You will be responsible for   creating the data lookup columns for the following categories. (If   you are unsure of how to complete this step, see the following video.)

 

Create a list for   the following categories that correlate with the Input data. 

 

· List   8 different Auto Types

· List   of 12 Months

· List   12 different Years

· List   8 different Gallon amounts

· List   2 Gas Types

· List   5 different Prices per Gallon. (What you would pay for gas at the pump.)

· Create   a list from 1-10 for the # in Stock

 

3.

Once you have created your Data Validation   Category lists, you will begin protecting the Input Data Spreadsheet. You   will compete the following on the Input Data Spreadsheet. (If   you are unsure of how to complete this step, see the following video.)

 

· Auto   – (Column B) – you will create a data validation column for the cells B5:B12.   Apply the “Data Validation List”   option for the Auto Types.

 

· Month   – (Column C) – you will create a data validation column for the cells C5:C12.   Apply the “Data Validation List”   option for the Month.

 

· Year   – (Column D) – you will create a data validation column for the cells D5:D12.   Apply the “Data Validation List”   option for the Year.

 

· Gallons   – (Column E) – you will create a data validation column for the cells E5:E12.   Apply the “Data Validation List”   option for the Gallons.

 

· Gas   Type – (Column F) – you will create a data validation column for the cells F5:F12.   Apply the “Data Validation List”   option for the Gas Type.
 

· Price   Per Gallon – (Column G) – you will create a data validation column for the   cells G5:G12. Apply the “Data Validation   List” option for the Price per Gallon.

 

· # in Stock – (Column H) – you will create a   data validation column for the cells F5:F12. Apply the “Data Validation List” option for the # in Stock. 

 

The Total Cost, Budget and Stock columns   have formulas that need to be protected to assure that the information will   be correct. You will create protected columns that users will not be able to   change. (If you are unsure of how to complete this step, see the   following video.)

 

· Total Cost, Budget and Stock – (Columns I, J   and K) – create a PROTECTED column for each column that will keeps these   cells locked. (Cells I5:K12) All other columns, B, C, D, E, F, G and H user   will be able to change the data. (Password will be the same as the Password   used to protect the entire file…see below.)

 

It will be important to protect the entire   workbook from accidentally being opened by the wrong employee. You will need   to add a password to the entire workbook. (If you are unsure   of how to complete this step, see the following video.)

 

· Password protect the entire file

· Be   sure to provide your instructor with the password by posting it in the   comments when you submit the homework.

 

4.

Finally,

Write a one-page   reflection (Word document) on how you can use controls like these (data   validation, protecting data, and locking workbooks) going forward in your   career.

 

5.

Submit your completed Excel workbook,   one-page reflection and password.
