    Assignment Steps

Read the following business scenario:

Your company has asked you to create a spreadsheet to analyze the following data. The data will be reviewed for top salespeople bonuses and commissions payments based on individual sales. Averages will be used to analyze month-over-month sales throughout the years.

Use the Sales Analysis Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet and apply formatting to accomplish the following:

  • Calculate total sales using the SUM function.
  • Calculate total sales for each quarter. (March, June, and September each represent a quarter.). A quarter is three months.
  • Calculate average sales for each quarter to help determine 4th-quarter potential sales. 
  • Highlight the top salesperson in each quarter. 
  • Generate a Microsoft® Excel® chart or graph that displays the total sales by region to identify the highest and lowest selling regions.
  • Insert a hyperlink to the company’s web page. (You can use any business web page for this example.)
  • Change your spreadsheet to a page or print layout view to be sure it fits well on a printed 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper.
