highlight any Duplicate values using a conditional formatting color

option of your choice. (Hint: Two values in the table will be highlighted.)

formula.

15.

determine the average salary (based on the Current Salary field values)

for the employees with a Job Status field value of FT. Use structured

references to the Job Status column and Current Salary column in your

formula.

16. Create a new PivotTable (not a recommended PivotTable) based on the

titled EmployeeListPivot between the EmployeeSubtotal and

18.

In cell N2, enter a formula using the IF and OR functions to determine

whether an employee will earn a bonus vacation week. A bonus vacation

week is awarded to employees based on their job status (shown in

Column G) or years of service (shown in column M). Use structured

references and the following parameters when creating this formula:

a. If the employee’s Job Status field value is equal to FT or an employee’s

Years Service field value is greater than 20, the formula should return

the value 1 (indicating 1 bonus week of vacation).

b. If neither of those conditions are true, the formula should return the

value 0 (indicating 0 bonus weeks of vacation).

The formula should automatically fill into the range N2:N101. (Hint: If the

formula does not fill into that range, copy the formula from cell N2 to the

range N3:N101.)

19.

In cell O2, enter a formula using nested IF functions to calculate the

maximum amount of 401(k) contributions that the company will match

for an employee. The company’s 401(k) matching plan is based on an

employee’s job status (shown in column G) and years of service (shown

in column M). Use the following parameters and noted reference types

when creating this formula:

a. If an employee’s Job Status field value is equal to FT, the employee is

eligible for the 401(k) matching program. Use a structured reference to

the Job Status field in the formula.

b. If the FT employee also has a Years Service field value greater than or

equal to 15, the Max 401(k) Company Match amount is calculated by

multiplying the employee’s Current Salary by the value in cell T3. Use

structured references to the Years Service and Current Salary fields and

an absolute reference to cell T3 in the formula.

c. If the FT employee does not have a Years Service value greater than or

equal to 15, the Max 401(k) Company Match amount is calculated by

multiplying the employee’s Current Salary by the value in cell T4. Use

structured references to the Years Service and Current Salary fields and

an absolute reference to cell T4 in the formula.

d. If the employee’s Job Status field value is not equal to FT, the formula

should return a value of 0.

The formula should automatically fill into the range O2:O101. (Hint: If the

formula does not fill into that range, copy the formula from cell O2 to the

range O3:O101.)

20.

In cell P2, enter a formula using the VLOOKUP function to determine the

cost of each employee’s medical plan as described below:

a. Use a structured reference to the Medical Plan field as the

Lookup_value parameter value.

b. Use the defined name Medical_Premium (which represents the range

S8:T15) as the Table_array parameter value.

c. Use 2 as the Column_index_num parameter value.

d. Use FALSE as the Range_Lookup parameter value.

e. The entire VLOOKUP function should be multiplied by 12 (to convert

the monthly premium cost to a yearly premium cost).

The formula should automatically fill into the range P2:P101. (Hint: If the

formula does not fill into that range, copy the formula from cell P2 to the

range P3:P101.)

21.

In cell Q2, nest the existing formula in the cell into an IFERROR function.

The IFERROR formula should display the message Invalid Plan Code if the

HLOOKUP function returns an error value.

The updated formula should automatically fill into the range Q2:Q101.

(Hint: If the formula does not fill into that range, copy the formula from

cell Q2 to the range Q3:Q101.)

22.

Switch to the WorkforcePivot worksheet. Apply the Pivot Style Medium 2

PivotTable style to the PivotTable.

23.

In the WorkforcePivot table, modify the Years Service field (displaying as

Sum of Years Service) in the VALUES area as described below:

a. Change the summary function for the field to Average.

b. Change the custom name of the field to Average Years of Service.

(Hint: If you select a summary function after defining the custom name

for this value, confirm that the custom name you defined did not change.

Do not include the period in the custom name.)

c. Change the number format of the column to display using the Number

format with 1 decimal place.

24.

Add the Pay Grade field to the FILTERS area of the PivotTable. Filter the

table to only display records where the Pay Grade field value equals B.

25.

Add a slicer to the PivotTable based on the Gender field as described

below:

the slicer appears in cell E3 and the bottom-right corner appears in cell

F9.

b. Using the slicer, filter the table to only display records with a Gender

26.

Switch to the RegistrationEntry worksheet and add a Data Validation rule

to cell B9 as described below:

a. The Data Validation rule should allow values from a List whose source

is the range G4:G6. The list should ignore blank and display as an in-cell

dropdown.

b. The Input Message title should be Select Dorm and the Input Message

should be Select a Dorm from the dropdown list. (including the period).

c. The Error Alert title should be Incorrect Dorm and the Error Message

should be Please select a valid Dorm. (including the period).

27.

Switch to the Visual Basic Editor and edit the RegistrationEntry macro so

that the Range(“B3:B10”).Select command will select the range B3:B11.

Switch to the RegistrationRecord worksheet and run the macro to

confirm that the macro copied a record with a value in the Registration

Date field value into the table. (Hint: The shortcut to run this macro is

CTRL+k.)

28.

Switch back to viewing the RegistrationEntry worksheet. Add a macro

button to the worksheet in the range A12:B13 that is linked to the

RegistrationEntry macro in the worksheet. Change the name of the

button to Record Registration.

29.

Protect the RegistrationEntry worksheet without a password. Do not

change any of the default protection options for the worksheet.
