12. Now use database functions to analyze inventory data. This method gives you more flexibility in your analysis. Once you set up

the formulas, you can change the criteria in the worksheet without changing the formulas. The InventoryDB named range has

been created for you to use as the Database argument. It references A2:125 on the Inventory worksheet. Notice this named

range includes the label row.

Use the DAVERAGE database function to calculate the average selling price for all items with the word Football in the item

description. Use the wildcard character * before and after the word Football to find all item descriptions with Football anywhere

in the text. Use the column label Selling Price as the Field argument. Remember to enclose the column label in quotation marks.

16. Add an IFERROR function around the INDEX function to hide any error messages by displaying an empty text string ( """ ).

a.) If necessary, select cell B16 again, and then click in the formula bar so you can edit the formula. ae

b.LJ After the =, type: IFERROR( “

c.LJ Move the cursor to the end of the formula and type: ,"") ao

d. J Press (Enter}. rr)

e. J The formula should now look like this: ae

=IFERROR( INDEX( Inventory , MATCH($B$15, Inventory ! $B$3:$B$25,@),1),"")

17.1) Copy the formula from cell B16 to cells B17:B18. a

18.) Modify the formula in cell B17 to use 9 as the Column_num argument for the INDEX function. The formula should look like Pr)

this:

=IFERROR( INDEX( Inventory , MATCH($B$15, Inventory ! $B$3:$B$25,@),9),"")

19.) Modify the formula in cell B18 to use 7 as the Column_num argument for the INDEX function. The formula should look like a

this:

=IFERROR( INDEX( Inventory , MATCH($B$15, Inventory ! $B$3:$B$25,0),7),"")

20.) If necessary, apply the Accounting Number Format to cell B18. “

21. Enter a formula using RANK.EQ to calculate the ranking of this item’s price.

23. Hank's Sporting Goods is considering taking out a $25,000 loan to pay for inventory. The details of that loan are shown on the

Financials worksheet in cells C2:D6. You will help Hank calculate how much money he would make if he invested those same

monthly payments in a money market account instead. Calculate the theoretical future value of the same amount deposited

monthly in a money market account.

a.) Switch to the Financials worksheet. 49

b.) Click cell D9. “

c.LJ On the Formulas tab, in the Function Library group, click the Financial button, and select FV. ao

d. J Enter the Rate argument, referring to the money market interest rate in cell B4. The rate is expressed as an annual ad

interest rate, and payments will be monthly, so divide the interest rate by 12: B4/12

e.L_) Enter the Nper argument, referring to cell D5. There will be monthly payments, so multiply the number of years by 12: ao

D5*12

f.) Enter the Pmt argument referring to the cell showing the monthly payment amount for the loan: D4 ad

Notice that the loan payment is already expressed as a negative number so there is no need to alter the Pmt argument.

a. _} Click cell D13. On the Formulas tab, in the Function Library group, click the Financial button, and select NPER. ad

b._) Enter the Rate argument, referring to the loan interest rate in cell B3. The rate is expressed as an annual interest rate, “0

and payments will be monthly, so divide the interest rate by 12: B3/12

c.LJ Enter the Pmt argument referring to the cell showing the new monthly payment amount for the loan: D12 ad

Notice that the loan payment is already expressed as a negative number so there is no need to alter the Pmt argument.

d.) Enter the Pv argument referring to the original loan amount in cell D3. ad

e.L_] The loan will be completely paid off, so you can skip the Fv argument. ad

f.) Payments would be applied at the end of each payment period, so you can skip the Type argument. ao

g. J Click OK. The formula in cell D13 should look like this: =NPER(B3/12,D12,D3) ao

25. Hank is easily confused by too many digits after the decimal point, so add a ROUND function to round the number of months

to zero decimal places.

a. LJ If necessary, click cell D13 again. ad

b. ) In the formula bar, add the ROUND function using the existing FV function as the Number argument and 0 as the ad

Num_digits argument. The formula should now look like this: =ROUND(NPER(B3/12,D12,D3) ,@)

26. Hank has another financial question for you. He needs to decide between three equipment purchase options. Option 1 is the

least expensive and will require minimal repairs. It will generate the lowest increase in revenue. Option 2 is $10,000 more than

Option 1 and will generate a higher increase in revenue, but it will require significant repairs in year 5 and will begin declining in

productivity in year 7. Option 3 is the most expensive. It will also generate the highest increase in revenue. However, it will

require more frequent and expensive repairs than the other two options.
