Case 1: Revenue Analysis


Open the sheet “Revenue” for this case.

Figure 1 Case 1 IMU% Table Setup


Miss Jay Tee is a buyer for a specialty store in Chicago. She reviewed the current stock and determined

the following figures for the coming quarter:

• The merchandise on hand (Current) of 500 pairs of leather boots are selling well at $200 retail with a 52% markup.

• She intended to buy additional 4,000 pairs of leather boots in this quarter. o The first 1,000 pairs (Purchase 1) will be sent by air with a delivered cost of $55 per pair.

Miss Tee can combine the current stock and this new purchase to make a balanced size

and color. Thus, the price tag for this new purchase will match the current inventory.

o The second 1500 pairs (Purchase 2) have a landed cost of $50 and will be sent by sea. Miss Tee intends to put a price tag of $150 on these boots.

o The remaining 1500 boots (Purchase 3) are billed at $60 per pair. Miss Tee planned an initial markup of 50% for this purchase.

• The overall quarterly maintained markup percentage (%) is planned at 56%.

Table 2

Complete Table 2 using SUMIF functions.

• Compute units, total cost, and total retail for the current stock and new purchases.

• The minimal requirement is to use SUMIF to calculate the new purchase row.

• Use absolute cell references to secure the range.

Table Format

Number Format

Format all numbers to have appropriate decimals and signs.

• Dollar numbers: show the “$” sign and zero decimal places.

• Percent numbers: show the “%” sign and keep two decimal places.

• Quantity numbers: show zero decimal places Table Format

• Add borders to the table.

• Change the width of the table borders. The outside border needs to be thicker than the inside borders.

• The double border in the Example (Figure 1) is not required. Conditional Formatting

• Use conditional formatting to highlight the cell with the highest markup%.

• The highlighted cell will have a yellow background color.


Insert a pie chart (see an example in Figure 2) to represent the total retail in dollars as a factor of stock.

Chart Data

• The y-axis data reflects the “total retail” column of the table.

• The total retail can be achieved by the entire merchandise is represented by areas of all pies added together.

• The a-axis data reflects the “stock” column of the table. Chart Format

• The pie slices will have a pattern fill instead of the default color fill. Pick your own color and pattern.

Case II. Pivot Table/Chart

Open the sheet “Sales” for this case.

Pivot Table

Create two PivotTables based on a new datasheet, “Sales.”

• The first table (Table 1) shows the total revenue achieved by each salesperson (salesperson × revenue).

• The second table (Table 2) shows the average price per order accumulated by each company (customer name × unit price).

• Both tables should appear on the same datasheet.

Table Format

• Dollar numbers: show the “$” sign and two decimal places.

• Sort Table 1 according to sales revenue in descending order (i.e., the salesperson with the most sales should appear at the top).

• Sort Table 2 according to the average price per order in ascending order.

Pivot Chart

Create two PivotCharts on the same datasheet (“Sales”).

• Choose “bar chart” for both PivotCharts.

• Create a slicer “region” to filter data in both PivotTables.

• Connect the slicer to both charts/tables.

• Show sales data for the west region.

Chart Formats

• Both charts need to have a proper title and a legend.

• Format the labels by the y axis: show zero decimal places for the dollar numbers.
