In the following project, you will edit a worksheet that will be used to prepare a five-year forecast of the costs associated with street maintenance.
Open the Excel workbook Student_Excel_3F_Streets.xlsx downloaded with this project.
Change the Theme Colors to Blue Green. On the Housing Revenue sheet, in the range B4:F4, fill the year range with the values 2016 through 2020.
In cell C6, construct a formula to calculate the percent of increase in annual street maintenance costs from 2016 to 2017. Format the result with the Percent Style and then fill the formula through cell F6 to calculate the percent of increase in each year.
In the range B12:F12, use the fill handle to enter the years 2020 through 2024. Use Format Painter to apply the format from cell B4 to the range B12:F12.
Copy the value in cell F5 to cell B13. In cell B10, type 6% which is the projected increase estimated by the City financial analysts. To the range A10:B10, apply Bold and Italic.
In cell C13, construct a formula to calculate the annual projected street maintenance costs for the year 2021 after the projected increase of 6% is applied. Use absolute cell references as necessary. Fill the formula through cell F13, and then use Format Painter to copy the formatting from cell B13 to the range C13:F13.
Use Format Painter to copy the format from cell A8 to cell A15. Copy the range B12:F12, and then Paste the selection to B17:F17.
Copy the range B13:F13 and then paste the Values & Number Formatting to the range B18:F18. Complete the Projected Estimates section of the worksheet by changing the Projected Increase in B10 to 4% and then copying and pasting the Values & Number Formatting to the appropriate range in the worksheet. Save your workbook.
Select rows 8:24, and then insert the same number of blank rows as you selected. Clear Formatting from the inserted rows. By using the data in A5:F5, insert a Line with Markers chart in the worksheet. Move the chart so that its upper left corner is positioned in cell A9 and visually centered under the data above.
Display the Select Data Source dialog box, and then edit the Horizontal (Category) Axis Labels using the range that contains the years in B4:F4. Format the Bounds of the Vertical (Value) Axis so that the Minimum is 2000000 and the Major unit is at 200000.
Format the Chart Area with a Border by applying a Solid line. In the fifth column, click the last color. Change the Width of the border to 2 pt.
